Health Related Research

An emerging area of research intersecting my lines of inquiry on agency, technology, and learning analytics have begun to take hold in the field of health care. I am a Co-Investigator on a $1.75 million recently submitted CIHR-SPOR Innovative Clinical Trial (iCT) grant INTeractive E-health Randomized Clinical Trial in Heart Failure with partners from University of Alberta, University of Calgary, and Alberta Health Services. In addition, I have given numerous talks in the community around patient identity (2014, 2015a, 2015b, 2015c, 2015d) and have been invited as a keynote speaker with the BC eHealth and Innovative Technology Showcase, BC Quality Forum, the BC Health Leadership Conference, and Canada Health Infoway. I continue to engage with the health care community on issues of patient identity and engagement, and have begun to form a line of research around this area. As a result, I was recently made a fellow of the Centre for Health Education Scholarship at University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine and look forward to engaging this community to continue this important work.
