The overall aim of my program of research is to optimize the management of diabetes and quality of life of people with diabetes across the lifespan, through:
a) identifying patient, provider and health system factors that impede or facilitate patient self-care;
b) testing novel approaches to optimize patients’ participation in their own diabetes care; and
c) identifying and implementing innovative approaches to knowledge synthesis and knowledge dissemination related to self-care and other aspects of diabetes
