We have conducted research for medical foundations such as the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

  • Concept testing
  • Advertising evaluation

We have worked with two hospitals to redesign their public contact areas (counters, restaurants, etc.).

While much of our Health Care research is straightforward or standard, for example, determining what Respirologists think of a particular drug or what trauma unit head nurses think of a particular treatment, some of our research is less standard. Three examples are:

  1. An AIDs study in which we investigated attitudes, behaviour concerns, challenges among:
    • patients in various stages of AIDs, including heads of support groups
    • physicians who specialise in treating AIDs patients and physicians who do not include AIDs patients in their practic
    • nurses in Aids hospices
    • care givers (e.g. counsellors, massage therapists)
    • community workers
    • educators
    • family members

  2. A study of a diabetes information and control program among high risk populations including reservation Indians.
  3. A pro bono study among psychiatric patients to determine how they see the community reacting to them and the obstacles they face integrating into the community as a result.
