Ben McCutchen

Having grown up in rural Ontario, Ben's research interests include the impact of policies aimed at improving primary healthcare in rural and remote areas. As a Forum Fellow, during his final year of the Bachelor of Health Sciences program, Ben was involved in the preparation of evidence and issue briefs for stakeholder dialogues on chronic pain management and on the involvement of civil society in supporting research use in health systems. He also did an internship at the World Health Organization in Geneva, where he was involved with the monitoring, evaluation and strategic planning for EVIPnet, a social and collaborative network that promotes the systematic use of health research evidence in policymaking. Now completing his final year at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University, his current research interests include the role of Family Health Teams in preventing urgent care usage, and the role of risk assessment in outpatient psychiatric populations.
