Don Voaklander, PhD, MSc, BPE
I am interested in research that focuses on injury prevention and injury outcomes. The methodological approach I most commonly use is analyses using linked administrative health data.
Through the stakeholders involved with the Injury Prevention Centre, I have numerous links to government decision makers and practitioners.

Currently accepting MSc students.
Administrative health data have been used widely for decision making and research in Canada and the world. Analysis of these data required knowledge of data features and unique analytical skills since data are not collected for research purposes. This course will help hone students data management and analytical skills to answer research questions using health systems data. Note: Credit may not be obtained for both PHS 699 and SPH 699.
