Dr. Janet McCabe PhD MEd RN is an Assistant Professor at the College of Nursing, University of Saskatchewan at the Prince Albert campus. In the context of research, Dr. McCabe's focus is on the engagement and empowerment of children and youth with exceptionalities (and their families) in relation to participation in everyday life and within the health care system, and uncovering the hidden disparities between rural and urban settings. This research area has been informed by professional nursing practice in both acute and rehabilitative pediatric settings. Dr. McCabe's work is rooted, philosophically, within critical approaches, specifically the work of Michel Focuault and Julia Kristeva, and employs equally critical methods and methodologies.

Dr. McCabe received SHRF funding for her doctoral research project which focused on exploring nursing practice in relation to sexual health care and youth with disabilities. Her research is grounded in critical approaches. Dr. McCabe is a collaborator of the Unit for Critical Research in Health at the University of Ottawa, and currently holds an Adjunct Position with the School of Nursing, University of Ottawa.

Dr. McCabe welcomes any inquires about her research, publications, and current work, especially from potential graduate students interested in disability work from a critical perspective.
