Professor Deber’s current research centers on Canadian health policy. Current projects, conducted with colleagues and students, include: implications of the distribution of health expenditures and public/private roles for financing and delivery of health services (including primary care); examination of where nurses and other health professionals work and the factors associated with differential “stickiness” across sub-sectors; issues associated with the movement of care from hospitals to home and community; approaches to accountability; and factors affecting patient engagement.
