Dr. Orianna Mak, PGY2
Supervisor: Dr. Ania Van Meer
It is widely known that street-involved youth face a myriad of negative health-related outcomes relative to their housed counterparts. The proposed project will therefore seek to understand the self-identified barriers to care amongst street-involved youth in Hamilton. I will be presenting my research proposal for this qualitative assessment and seeking feedback on the study design.
- Understand some of the negative health-related outcomes associated with street-involvement amongst youth.
- Develop an understanding of integrated knowledge translation and its importance.
