Adolescent decision-making; child health policy; evidence-based policy-making; law and policy-related education of health care professionals
My research focuses on how health policy is formed, influenced, and analyzed, and how therapeutic and ethical insights could help inform policy with the intent to make it more sensitive to its consequences on the health of individuals and populations. Currently, I am developing a framework for health policymaking that builds on the insights of therapeutic jurisprudence. I am also studying the impact of health policy on adolescent decision-making, and the law's flexibility in allowing a sharing among the adolescent, family, and health care professional(s) in the decision-making process. I am also generally interested in how health care professionals are trained in the law, and the extent to which medical education prepares them to exercise a voice in the policy process, and beyond that, if/how that voice could best be used.
