“Value Judgments In Health Economics Modelling For Primary Care: Towards Patient And Public Partnership In BC”
Supervisor: Diego Silva
Harvard’s research interests are in values in science, specifically in health economics and simulation modelling studies.
Her recent work has aimed to clarify what sorts of social and ethical value judgments arise in health economics modelling. The upcoming project she is working on will share this knowledge with patients and the public, and ask their views on participating in the modelling process. This is important because health economics models are often used to inform health care policy, including what services people will have access to.
At SFU, Harvard enjoys having the opportunity to listen, learn and collaborate with various people across different departments.
“I appreciate that SFU shares many of my values, including the importance of acknowledging colonialism and the fact that we are on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish People.”
