BIO

Dr. Gillian Mulvale is Associate Professor of Health Policy and Management at the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University. She is a member of the Centre for Health Economics and Policy Analysis (CHEPA) and the Michael G. DeGroote Health Leadership Academy. Dr. Mulvale completed her M.A. in Economics at Western University, and her Ph.D. in Health Research Methodology at McMaster University. Dr. Mulvale promotes person and family-centred care by developing health policy and management frameworks to improve care coordination across health professions, sectors, and life stages. She frequently employs participatory approaches such as Experience-Based Co-Design, to involve policy-advisors, health system managers, service providers, patients, and families to co-design service improvements. Dr. Mulvale and her team won a Davey Gold Award for developing a suite of smartphone and web applications called myEXP that capture experiences of youth with mental disorders, family members and service providers in real time for quality improvement, through an Ontario Early Research Award.
