Jennifer Davis

Dr. Jennifer Davis is an assistant professor in the Faculty of Management at UBC Okanagan and an MSFHR Scholar. Her career goal is to improve the health of Canadians through applied health economic evaluation and outcomes research. Her research focuses on conducting economics evaluations alongside randomized controlled trials (i.e. cost-effectiveness and cost-utility analyses) in a variety of clinical settings that include falls, fracture and cognition. A core part of Davis’ current research program includes health outcomes research (i.e. exploring the value of patient reported outcome measures) in the fields of healthy aging (i.e. cognition, mobility) and various surgical outcomes. She also enthusiastically contributes as a co-director of operations of the Falls Prevention Clinic at Vancouver General Hospital. She is working collaboratively on an initiative to apply proven cost-effective and cost-saving secondary falls prevention interventions for high risk older adults across BC. Davis has served on the editorial board (since 2008) and as a Deputy Editor (since 2017) for Health Economics Submissions to the British Journal of Sports Medicine (to 2020).
