Dr Yusrita Zolkefli


Assistant Professor, Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa'adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences



I have been teaching nursing programmes since 2007 and involved in the development of Bachelor Nursing curriculum in 2008-2010. I currently coordinate the Bachelor Programme in Nursing (Cohort 6) and convene the Law and Ethics for Health Professionals as an external breadth module.

My primary research is concerned with the nursing ethics and its relationship to patient care and professional development. My areas of research interests include the ethical challenges and issues in clinical setting, for example confidentiality, informed consent, patient/familial autonomy and the relationships that nurses establish with clients and family and how these affect patient care. I also have a long standing interest in nursing values, the experience of patient and family, professional attitudes and behaviors as well as related aspects of nursing practice and education. My methodological interest is qualitative research in general, with an emphasis on Constructivist Grounded Theory.
