Dr. Barbera's main area of interest is health services research in cancer. While her primary expertise is in using large administrative health datasets to study health care service use, she has a secondary interest in patient reported outcomes. Her active projects include patterns of care for vulvar carcinoma, quality of end-of-life/palliative care in four Canadian provinces, provincial perspective on patient-reported outcomes (ESAS) and development of tools to assess sexual function after treatment of gynecologic cancers.
