Past president of the Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses, Asha Pereira is recognized as an innovative leader at the local, provincial and national levels. As direct care provider, educator, director, and now clinical nurse specialist in trauma, her research has focused both on investigating the impact of unexpected hospitalized trauma on family members and the effect of shift work on the sleep/wake patterns of critical care nurses. Asha’s commitment to the individuals and families she encounters in her work as well as the well-being of her nursing colleagues is demonstrated through her work and extensive involvement with professional nursing organizations.
