Teaching Philosophy and Profile

Dr. Elbatarny is an established educator. He dedicated his expertise to the BScN as well as Science students at both St. Lawrence College and Queen’s University. He uses his medical background and over 10 years of medical practice to provide clinical examples that support nursing students learning. He believes in the learning-centered teaching approach where students rather than the faculty are the focus of the teaching/learning process. He strongly supports the shift in the role of the instructor from an information provider to a learning facilitator. To serve this purpose, Dr. Elbatarny uses a variety of traditional and non-traditional pedagogical tools during his lectures and labs to engage his students and keep them motivated and eager to learn. He pays great attention to the preparation and utilization of PowerPoint to provide an interactive lecture that is highly appreciated by his students. Dr. Elbatarny has been teaching Anatomy and Physiology and Clinical Chemistry to BScN students since 2005. He is also an adjunct faculty member at the department of Biomedical and Molecular sciences at Queen’s University, teaching Pharmacology as well as Physiology to BScN and Science students. Dr. Elbatarny was the recipient of Queen’s Reddick Award for Excellence in Nursing Education in 2013.

Scholarship Profile

Scholarship interest and diverse expertise fall into all pillars of scholarships:

Scholarship of discovery (research)

Dr. Othman has been studying the rare bleeding disorder known as PT-VWD with a defect in platelet GP1BA gene since 2000. She has established an online international database disease registry  www.pt-vwd.com and led an international project that examined the occurrence of this disorder and established its molecular diagnosis. With over 15 collaborators worldwide, she is a regular speaker at the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) conference and an active member of its Platelet Physiology-SSC.  Dr. Othman was the first to describe a deletion mutation in the platelet GP1BA gene in this disorder and first to describe CAR receptor on blood platelets. She also studies the role of platelet GPIb alpha protein in haemostasis and beyond, and is currently characterizing further the mouse model for the platelet GPIb alpha protein defects. She has developed an interest in coagulopathy and prostate cancer and has investigated the use of the global haemostatic assay thromboelastography (TEG) to assess thrombosis risk stratification in patients under different therapies particularly those under androgen deprivation therapy and completed a longitudinal study in this regard. She also promotes the use of TEG in the obstetric fields and has used the technology in both clinical and animal studies in pregnancy complications such as pre-eclampia and recurrent pregnancy loss and in the context of oral contraceptive use.  Her efforts nationally and international has led to her appointment as the chairman of the ISTH’s Women’s SSC. Dr. Othman received funding over the years from the Canadian Hemophilia Society and Prostate Cancer Canada, Queen’s University and St Lawrence College.

Scholarship of teaching and learning

Dr. Othman aims to integrate research in the undergraduate years of the BScN program. She developed two undergraduate research elective course for the third year BScN at SLC between 2010- present. 

“Practical Health Science Research” and “Basic and Clinical Immunology” research elective course. In these course students work indecently or in groups based on SGL model, and are coached to formulate a novel research question and submit the following throughout the course: Study proposal, Experimental protocol and Poster (design and class presentation). Outstanding projects are provided with opportunities for further development, publications, and submission to local and national conferences. The course has gained popularity over years and is a good path to post graduate studies. Two students from this course; participated in Presentation/ Panel discussion at 2019 Advancing Learning Conference,  Collège La Cité, Ottawa. Additionally, Dr. Othman is a featured speaker on the annual "5th World Congress on Nursing & Healthcare" November 12-14, 2018.

In collaboration with Dr. Nancy Sears, she initiated and completed a systematic study to investigate the relationship between the results of the NCLEX-RN exam and the performance of students in the undergraduate courses. Phase 1 of the study was  completed by a systematic literature review was published in 2015 in more recently phase II was also completed by a published report in 2017 with the following title: Canadian NCLEX-RN outcomes: A two-year cross-sectional exploratory study in Ontario.

Developing and supervising a student led project with SLC iGNITE funding, she created “PeersInPatho”. Following a two year initial in-person tutorial development, and publishing the experience in 2019 in the Journal of Nursing Education and Practice, a set of interactive resources were created via an online website pathophysiology course https://peersinpatho.com/ required by all undergraduate nursing students. We then published the first edition of “Pathophysiology Notes: A Comprehensive Course Guide” which compiled lecture slides and notes with added clinical experience and knowledge from former students.

Education

Katherine Poser is proud alumni of St. Lawrence College Kingston.  She received a diploma from the Registered Nursing program (1995) and a diploma in Critical Care Nursing (1997). She completed her BScN with St. Francis Xavier University (2005) and MNEd from Athabasca University (2011). Katie is currently completing her Doctoral studies at Queen’s University. Her research focuses on understanding the challenge of providing and receiving post-operative pain management for people on opioid agonist treatment.

Career Overview

Provided with very rewarding career opportunities, Katie has had the opportunity to work as a critical care staff nurse and educator. She was granted the privilege of assisting in developing and delivering portions of the curriculum for the New Brunswick Critical Care Program, a joint venture between the University of New Brunswick and the Government of New Brunswick.

In 2006, Katie was asked to join the Government of New Brunswick full time as a Health care consultant to the Minster of Health (New Brunswick), Inspector of Anatomy, Provincial/Territorial Blood Services Liaison Committee member and manager of the New Brunswick Organ and Tissue Procurement Program. During this time Katie developed and implemented best practices in early identification of potential organ donors and translated this knowledge in Canada and Internationally.

Katie was drawn back to Kingston and St. Lawrence College in 2010. She has been involved in teaching the acute care nursing practice courses, optimizing the use of the SLC simulation lab in the BScN program, and preparing students for their NCLEX upon graduation. Katie is passionate about both academia and remaining current in clinical practice and balances her time to include bedside nursing practice in the level 3 Intensive Care Unit at Kingston Health Sciences Center.

In late 2019 Katie developed the curriculum for the St Lawrence College RN Critical Care Nursing Program. This graduate certificate program was launched in 2020 and welcomed over 500 students during its first three years.

Areas of interest for research include perioperative pain management for specialized populations, implementation science, critical care, ensuring authenticity in simulation and mindfulness in nursing education and nursing practice.

Katie welcomes the opportunity to collaborate on exploring any of these or other topics with other researchers and will supervise graduate students who share similar research interests.
