Research Synopsis

My research and implementation projects focus primarily on the intersection of chronic pain, mental health and opioid use. I use a variety of research methods to investigate this area including systematic reviews, clinical trials, implementation evaluations, and bibliometric and media analyses. I am particularly interested in what the opioid crisis tells us about medicine as a field and thus how we can develop appropriate health policy responses.

I also direct a continuing professional development program ( and conduct evaluative educational research under the theme of understanding the relationship between educational methodology, program outcomes and health policy.
