Research relevance



Dr. Lavis’ research program emphasizes “evidence-informed” health systems – the health system arrangements and implementation arrangements that will provide the right mix of cost-effective programs, services and drugs get to those who need them. Lavis will evaluate innovative strategies that support the use of research evidence in health systems in Canada and internationally, and will examine how context and issues influence views about, experiences with, and impacts of, these strategies.
