She has recently been seconded as a Clinician Scientist with Alberta Health Services with a focus on home care and case management. Through her program of research PRIDE in Home Care Kim examines decision-making, knowledge translation, resource allocation, health policy and case management using innovative methods including arts-based approaches. She is particularly interested in the types of knowledge used to inform decisions about home care, home care service delivery, and resource allocation and how various factors influence the way we use knowledge in policy contexts; particularly it relates to better outcomes for home care clients.
