Jennifer Davis is an assistant professor in the Faculty of Management at the University of British Columbia. Her career goal is to improve the health of Canadians through applied health economic evaluation and outcomes research.
Jennifer’s research focuses on conducting economics evaluations alongside randomized controlled trials (such as cost-effectiveness and cost-utility analyses) in a variety of clinical settings that include falls, fracture and cognition. A core part of Jennifer’s current research program includes health outcomes research (such as exploring the value of patient reported outcome measures) in the fields of healthy aging, cognition, mobility and various surgical outcomes. Jennifer also enthusiastically contributes as a co-director of operations of the Falls Prevention Clinic at Vancouver General Hospital. Dr. Davis is working collaboratively on an initiative to apply proven cost-effective and cost-saving secondary falls prevention interventions for high risk older adults across B.C. Jennifer has served on the editorial board (2008-2020) and as a deputy editor (2017-2020) for Health Economics Submissions to the British Journal of Sports Medicine.
