Bio/Research

Heather Boon, BScPhm, PhD is an Associate professor and the Associate Dean for Graduate Education at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Toronto. She originally trained as a pharmacist and completed her PhD in medical sociology. She has been using, and teaching, qualitative research methods for almost 20 years. Her work generally follows the ethnographic tradition; however, she has explored other methods such as grounded theory, phenomenology, case studies and discourse analysis for specific research projects. Her current research interests are related to the safety culture of complementary and alternative medicine practices, the professionalization of complementary and alternative medicine practitioner groups as well as complementary and alternative medicine regulation and policy issues. She is the author of a textbook on natural health products and over 120 academic publications.
