Dr. Strumpf and her research team focus on evaluating the impacts of health and social policies on the health and wellbeing of individuals and populations, as well as on the performance of the health care system. We use methods for causal inference, principally quasi-experimental designs, to estimate the effects of interventions and reforms in real-world settings and actively collaborate with decision makers to generate relevant, usable knowledge to improve population health and health care system performance. Our team and our collaborators have strong expertise using administrative health data and large-scale surveys to evaluate the impact of health interventions and reforms in Quebec and Canada, as well as other jurisdictions around the world.
