“Implementation of a palliative approach to care in primary care settings; a realist evaluation”

About the Speaker:

Jodi Langley is a PhD Candidate in the Faculty of Health at Dalhousie University. She completed her Masters in Health and Exercise Science from UBC- Okanagan and her Bachelors degree in Kinesiology at Acadia University. Her research focuses on understanding non-curative cancer patient’s perspective of physical activity and other quality of life enhancing programmes.

This stream of research emerged from working with Dr. Grace Warner on implementing an early palliative approach to care in primary care which highlighted the positive impact of an early approach to palliative care for maintaining quality of life until the end of life.In her research, Jodi enjoys using realist evaluation, which asks the question “What works, for whom, under what circumstances and why?”

This type of evaluation increases our understanding of what makes some programmes successful and others unsuccessful. Other interests and efforts include working with the patient and public to co-design research projects that are sensitive to context. Jodi is a big advocate for community-based research and working with the community to design programmes that aim to benefit them directly. Current and past projects include Early Palliation through Integrated Care (EPIC), EXercise for Cancer to Enhance Living well (EXCEL), Activating Cancer Communities through an Exercise Strategy (ACCESS), and RESISTance training for brain cancer (RESIST).
