Research Focus

My research aims to evaluate disparities in access to care, trauma systems and patient-centred outcomes for patients originating from Nunavik. The overarching goal is to develop patient-centred care pathways, quality improvement initiatives and healthcare professional education programs in conjunction with the local communities to augment capacity, maximize quality of care and enhance the patient experience.
