PWHS students receive awards

June 2017: Congratulations to PWHS PhD student Sharon Provost, the recipient of a UBC Public Scholars Initiative award, and to PhD student Kimberly Sharpe, the recipient of a WorkSafeBC Research Training Award.

Sharon is an Interdisciplinary Studies PhD student combining Population and Public Health, Organizational Behaviour/Human Resources, and Nursing to explore factors contributing to sustaining a psychologically safe and healthy work environment for health care workers.

Kimberly is a Population and Public Health PhD student looking at regional variation in hospital admissions, surgeries, physician visits, and diagnostic tests in in workers’ compensation systems in BC, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and New Brunswick. Her research will lead to a better understanding of differences in access to health care and the impact these differences may have on disability duration and return-to-work outcomes.
