Research interests

As Director of the Geriatrics Health Systems Research Group (GHS), our research focuses on strategies to improve the effectiveness of geriatric health services and systems. Areas of research interest include challenges experienced by older patients as they transition across care settings, strategies that can foster greater care coordination and health system integration, and patient and citizen engagement in decision-making. I lead several projects for one of Canada’s Networks of Centres of Excellence, AGE-WELL, focused on technological innovation to support healthy and independent aging.
