Marianne Saragosa

2020 Junior Research Award Winner

Marianne Saragosa is a PhD candidate at the Institute for Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto.

Previous clinical experience as an RN in geriatrics has informed Marianne’s interest in care transitions and patient and caregiver engagement. Her research will examine the experiences of the patient-caregiver dyad for persons with dementia who have experienced a recent care transition from hospital to home. This grounded theory study will inform future practice innovations that best support older adults’ transitioning across the continuum of care.
