Biography

Dr. Laing’s program of research is in the field of Pediatric Oncology. Having an extensive background in clinical, educational, and administrative areas in this field, her doctoral research was a hermeneutic study related to understanding the meaning and effects of children’s cancer camps for the child with cancer and the family. Dr. Laing’s current research interests lie in understanding the therapeutic value of digital storytelling with pediatric oncology patients, and she is also working on incorporating the methodology of Social Return on Investment in the healthcare setting where questions of social value are present. Dr. Laing is active at the local, national, and international levels of pediatric oncology nursing.
