She leads actionable research to guide enhanced care coordination and integration of health and social care services for older adults and vulnerable populations. Dr. Peckham uses co-design and integrated knowledge translational approaches where people with lived experience (patients, caregivers, care providers, decision makers) are actively involved in my research. Ultimately, Dr. Peckham’s research seeks to identify lessons learned and best practices to effectively support collaboration across the healthcare system and promote effective health system (re)design.
Dr. Peckham brings extensive experience in conducting research with older adults and their caregivers, decision-makers, and providers.
