Health care is a policy area undergoing rapid, profound, and costly metamorphoses; yet forms of health care governance rarely evolve in step with these changes.

She also focuses on the development of inter-governmental relationships in addressing specific areas of policy development (such as health technology assessment and pharmaceutical purchasing).
