Current research and community work

Dr. Hampton is the PI on a SSHRC/CURA entitled "Rural and Northern Community Response to Intimate Partner Violence"
As well as the Saskatchewan academic coordinator for RESOLVE.

Dr Hampton has an active research agenda, with several ongoing health projects funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Social Science and Humanities Research Committee. Her areas of research include: end of life care with Aboriginal families, anti-violence research, and sexual health of youth. All of her projects are community-based and involve collaboration with such organizations as: the Greystone Bereavement Centre, Planned Parenthood Regina, AIDS Programs South Saskatchewan, PATHS (Provincial Association of Transition Houses and Services), and several Aboriginal organizations. The research methodology she uses is participatory action research that works toward increasing the health of marginalized groups. She and her research team have produced several videos under the title “Completing the Circle: End of Life Care with Aboriginal Families”; trailers can be found on her website.
