CHEPA’s faculty recently welcomed Meredith Vanstone as a new member. Vanstone, who is an assistant professor with McMaster’s Department of clinical epidemiology & biostatistics, was a post-doctoral fellow at the centre in 2012-13.
She says her research takes a sociocultural perspective to health policy and health services research questions. Her research interests include social and ethical issues in health technology assessment, health professional education, health policy, reproductive technology, and health information technology. She uses qualitative methodologies in her research, using both primary and secondary sources of data.
Vanstone has a PhD in health professional education from Western University and a BA (Hons) in philosophy and health studies from McMaster.
