Much of my recent research has involved the finding, casing, and evaluating exemplary programs in the prevention of traumatic injury. Currently, I am investigating how early intervention can play a role in a full local health integration network effort to prevent falls in later in life. Previous studies have included an evaluation of a province wide investigations of a multiple hospital and community program to prevent inflicted infant head trauma, the development of a public health initiative to prevent children’s injuries, and the design of safe non risk adverse playground for special needs children.
