Navisha Weerasinghe

NAVISHA WEERASINGHE is a second-year PhD nursing student at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing at the University of Toronto. Navisha is a Registered Nurse (RN) currently working as a Clinical Operations Manager at Halton Healthcare and staff RN in the emergency department at Brampton Civic Hospital. Navisha's experience as a Research Assistant with the Centre for Sustainable Health Systems sparked her interests in advancing environmentally sustainable care in health systems through research and practice. Her research interests include critically examining the role of the medical industry and the proliferation of single-use medical products, hospital infection control practices, and patient safety in relation to environmental sustainability. Navisha hopes that through her doctoral research, she will be able to transform the environmental sustainability of health systems through meaningful policy and practice changes, in addition to mitigating the ongoing climate crisis.
