My research interests can be categorized into the following broad
areas: examining issues involving access and delivery of cardiovascular
care at a population level; examining international differences in
cardiovascular practice patterns and outcomes; and health economics.
I have extensive experience working with population-level
administrative data, clinical registries, as well as large,
multinational clinical trials. In Alberta, we have developed an
integrated database linking inpatient, outpatient, and vital statistics
databases to examine cardiovascular care in Alberta. One of my primary
interests has been examining the burden of heart disease in women
relative to men.
Recently, I have extended this interest in women's health by
developing a ten-year pregnancy and birth cohort to examine the
downstream effects of gestational diabetes mellitus and other
pregnancy-related complications on the development of chronic disease.
