Dr. Barb Pesut, Canada Research Chair in Health, Ethics and Diversity, aspires to improve care for individuals at end-of-life who are at risk for health disparities because of geographic, cultural or social differences. Canadian socio-demographic trends indicate that end-of-life care, rurality, and religious/spiritual diversity are significant intersecting influences that impact the quality, accessibility and sustainability of health service delivery. Dr. Pesut's research, with its unique emphasis on urban/rural and religious/spiritual diversity, provides important and timely knowledge of how to provide high quality care at end-of-life. Her research lab is housed at UBC's Okanagan campus, ASC 287B.
