Prof. J. Craig Phillips

Biography

J. Craig Phillips takes a human rights and decolonization-based approach to higher education governance and a community-engaged approach to research. He led modernization of the Faculty’s bylaws and governance framework, and is currently leading a Faculty procedures review using an online platform to facilitate stakeholder engagement.

Dr. Phillips is senior co-chair of undergraduate curriculum renewal in the School of Nursing. He co-led an evidence-informed curriculum renewal designed to maximize engagement of stakeholders, including students, faculty and community partners. This included a systematic review of curriculum revision literature and logic model development. The renewed curriculum will insure that all graduates gain theoretical knowledge and laboratory practice experience before entering clinical environments. Additionally, students will gain knowledge of social and structural factors that contribute to health disparities in Canada, with an emphasis on Indigenous peoples and Francophones.

Dr. Phillips is co-director of the International Nursing Network for HIV Research and an investigator at the Centre for Research on Health and Nursing, a partnership between the University of Ottawa and Canadian Nurses Association (CNA). His research project, The ecosocial context of health as a human right, has documented social factors influencing health outcomes among marginalized populations, primarily persons living with HIV, in Botswana, Canada, Nigeria and the United States. He has received research funds from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), professional organizations (American Nurses Foundation) and philanthropic foundations (Elton John AIDS Foundation) to carry out his research work.

Dr. Phillips was inducted as a fellow of the American Academy of Nursing in 2015 for his significant contributions to advancing nursing globally. Since 2018, he has co-chaired the academy’s LGBTQ Health Expert Panel. He has supervised or co-supervised around 30 graduate students, including a Banting and Best Doctoral Student Award recipient. He has presented more than 95 scholarly papers at local, national and international conferences, and authored more than 45 articles in peer-reviewed journals and 13 book chapters.

Dr. Phillips holds an LLM in intercultural human rights law from St. Thomas University School of Law, Miami, Florida; a BSN from the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida; and an MSN and PhD in nursing from Florida International University, Miami, Florida. His nursing and human rights legal training and experience guide his practice as a nurse, nurse practitioner, nurse educator, researcher and administrator. He has more than two decades’ experience as a nurse or nurse practitioner working with persons living with HIV and/or mental illnesses in the United States and Canada.
