Raisa Deber



Professor Deber’s current research centers on Canadian health policy. Current projects, conducted with colleagues and students, include: implications of the distribution of health expenditures and public/private roles for financing and delivery of health services (including primary care); examination of where nurses and other health professionals work and the factors associated with differential “stickiness” across sub-sectors; issues associated with the movement of care from hospitals to home and community; approaches to accountability; and factors affecting patient engagement. Winner, Emmett Hall Memorial Lectureship 2009. In addition to many journal articles, book chapters, and books, Raisa Deber is the editor of Case Studies in Canadian Health Policy, written with the many students who took her case course.
