Overview

About

I am interested in promoting and improving patient safety and health service quality throughout Alberta. I am a mixed methods researcher, and my focus and experience is related to gathering patient and family feedback (i.e. surveys, focus groups, interviews). I am passionate about having the patient and family voice actively used to inform policy and decision-making within the province.
