Given her initial training in industrial design and her solid experience in health research, Pascale Lehoux combines a very specific mix of unique skills, which is key to the CRC research program.
She obtained her Ph.D. in Public Health from University of Montreal (Quebec, Canada) in 1996. She then completed postdoctoral studies in Science and Technology Studies at the University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands) in 1996-1997. She is Full Professor with the Department of Health Administration, and Researcher with the Groupe de Recherche Interdisciplinaire en Santé (GRIS) at University of Montreal. She obtained a National Scholar from the NHRDP (1998-2003) and a New Investigator Award from the CIHR-IHPSR (2003-2008).
During that period, her research sought to contribute to the field of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) by improving the understanding of how knowledge and technology are currently employed. Her work relies extensively on the sociology of innovation, analyses of science-based policymaking and qualitative research. She published close to 70 peer-reviewed papers examining the use of computerized medical records, telemedicine, scientific knowledge, and home care equipment.
Between 1999 and 2009, she has developped and managed the International Master’s Program in Health Technology Assessment and Management, a project involving several universities (Univ. of Montreal, Univ. of Ottawa, Univ. of Toronto, Univ. of Barcelona, Catholic Univ. of Rome) and several HTA agencies in Canada and Europe.
