My principal field of scholarship is grounded in infectious disease epidemiology and health services research and I have used theories and methods from these fields to focus my research on the prevention of healthcare-associated infections across the healthcare continuum. I have been involved in several research projects examining the relationship between evidence-based policies and healthcare-associated infection rates in the elderly population admitted to acute care and the cost-effectiveness of interventions aimed at reducing these costly adverse events. In addition to the work that I have done in the acute care setting, I am also currently working on projects examining infection prevention in the long term and primary care settings.
