Professor, Dept. of Family Medicine

Research Interests: As the Inaugural Director of ‘Participatory Research at McGill (PRAM) I am very committed in both furthering the academic discipline of  participatory research and developing the capacity of faculty and students in this research approach. Participatory research, where researchers partner with individuals, organisations, policy makers and entire communities throughout the research process also encourages both integrated and end of grant knowledge translation. My experience includes undertaking systematic reviews in the benefits of participatory research and undertaking projects partnering with patients, clinicians, health organisations, policy makers, vulnerable populations and community mobilization for the primary prevention of type 2 diabetes in Aboriginal communities.  I also have expertise in the evolving ethics of participatory research, which takes into consideration the ensures protection of the collectivities  in addition to the protection of individuals in the research process.

Keywords: Participatory Research, Ethics of Participatory Research, Knowledge Translation, Integrated Knowledge Translation, Health Promotion, Indians: North American, Primary Prevention Type 2 Diabetes
