Research Focus

My research focuses on knowledge translation in identification and correction of care gaps in cardiovascular diseases. I am also very interested in improving detection and treatment of heart diseases in women and ethnic minorities. I collaborated with several research groups to improve dissemination and uptake of guidelines of management of atrial fibrillation and heart diseases.
