Research description:

I'm a health economist interested in evidence-based policy and practice. Specific interests include patient safety, low-income populations, health technology assessment, and research using administrative data.

Health related research:

Current projects include an assessment of the costs and effects of a number of existing or planned patient safety improvements, a study of the coverage of BC's premium assistance program (intended to assist low-income residents with premium payment), and an assessment of the cost-effectiveness of nurse telephone consultation services.



Community projects

My research into the costs and effects of patient safety improvements is done in collaboration with the Vancouver Island Health Authority.
