Kirsten Marchand

Dr. Kirsten Marchand is a postdoctoral research fellow jointly based at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences (CHEOS), and Foundry, the provincial network of integrated health and wellness services for youth.

Her doctoral research was completed in 2020 at the School of Population and Public Health (UBC). This research applied mixed-methods to a longitudinal study of patient perceptions and satisfaction with injectable opioid agonist treatment, an innovative treatment for people with opioid use disorder.

Kirsten’s current fellowship is studying the patient, caregiver, and health system impacts of co-designed opioid treatment service innovations for youth using opioids. This research integrates qualitative methods, patient reported outcomes, electronic medical records and administrative data. She is also interested in patient-oriented research, and the development and implementation of person-centered outcome measures in substance use treatment.
