- My research expertise is in maternal and infant health promotion and health service delivery, evaluation of large community-based innovative health service reforms, and behavioural epidemiology.
- In health service reform, I am particularly interested in effective processes for reorienting maternal care services to become more consumer-focused and woman-centred, and policy and service provision responses to improve informed choice in maternity care.
- In my work on population approaches to health behaviour change among women, I am interested in application of behavioural theories to achieve large scale change in disease prevention and health promotion. Most of my research is applied, and about moving interventions that have proven small-scale effectiveness to field settings to establish their potential for population health impact.
- My research involves collaboration among a broad array of health professionals and social and behavioral scientists who share a public health or population-level perspective in planning and conducting research, and a woman-centred and consumer-focused approach to health service delivery and reform.
