Anne Neufeld RN, PhD is a Professor in the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. She teaches in public health nursing, aging and nursing research. Her research focuses on family caregiving and social support and nonsupport for women and men family caregivers, support for family caregivers of seniors with chronic conditions, immigrant women caregiver's experience of support and multicultural meanings of social support among immigrants and refugees. She has published research and methodological articles in journals such as the Canadian Journal on Aging, Canadian Journal of Nursing Research, Journal of Advanced Nursing, Journal of Family Nursing, Public Health Nursing, and Qualitative Health Research. Based on a shared background in public health nursing and a common interest in social support, she and Dr. Harrison have collaborated for over 20 years on a program of research addressing social support among family caregivers. Their exploration of support in diverse family caregiving situations has been facilitated by their focus on different populations in nursing; Dr. Neufeld's focus is older adults and Dr. Harrison's focus is families with infants and toddlers.
