Research interests

I have extensive research experience in the evaluation of models for the planning, funding and delivery of health care including the development of needs-based approaches to health care resource allocation, the evaluation of alternative delivery modalities for primary care in Ontario and the analysis of alternate payments for the provision of primary dental care. My main research interests are in economics of health care systems with particular emphasis on equity, resource allocation, alternative delivery models and health human resources planning models. I have over 300 publications in peer reviewed journals.
