Michael Wilson, PhD
Michael Wilson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impact (HEI), Assistant Director of the McMaster Health Forum and member of the Centre for Health Economics and Policy Analysis (CHEPA) at McMaster University. Michael completed his PhD in the Health Research Methodology Program as well as a diploma in Health Services and Policy Research at McMaster. His current research is focused on supporting the use of research evidence by community-based organizations in the health sector. This research includes conducting syntheses that can be used by health system decision-makers to address pressing health system issues; identifying citizens’ values and preferences for addressing these issues; and convening stakeholder dialogues to support collective problem solving among policymakers, stakeholders and researchers. Michael has applied these research methods to a number of studies related to frailty, mobility, and access to care systems, assistive technologies and non-medical at home services for older adults.
