David was first involved in health services research as a clinical epidemiologist evaluating Ontario’s ColorectalCancerCheck screening program. Recent health services research has involved health service utilization and continuum of care following acquired brain injury – with a focus on hypoxic-ischemic injury, an understudied population, most of whom die prior to or during the initial acute care episode. David’s work currently focuses on health services research related to primary care access during the COVID-19 pandemic
