Research and Practice of Dr Mary Jane Esplen

Dr Mary Jane Esplen RN

Clinician Scientist and Professor – University of Toronto

Area of expertise: Psychosocial Oncology

Dr Mary Jane Esplen has an extensive career in clinical oncology practice that has evolved over the years to include research as major part of her role. Her ability to drive research strongly tied to clinical practice and how she managed to stay in both academia and practice is part of what we talk about. More recently she has been appointed Director of the de Souza Institute for nursing oncology knowledge transfer for the province, and is planning to take this international. We discuss how her career evolved, why she loves psychosocial oncology and how others might learn from her experience.




Mary Jane Esplen: What is the impact of new technologies on practice? Who should be involved in helping families involve these technologies? How can they change clinical practice? What can my role be in this?
