Biography

Alisa Grigorovich is an interdisciplinary health services and policy researcher and a CIHR Health System Impact Fellow at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute – University Health Network. Her research focuses on health equity and quality of care, with particular attention to structural stigma, aging and disability.

In her research she uses critical theories, qualitative and mixed methods to capture how political, economic and cultural systems and processes intersect to shape health outcomes, access to care and experiences of care. She also uses arts-based methods for knowledge creation and knowledge translation, and for education and social change.

Her current postdoctoral research is focused on the ethical, legal and social implications involved in the use of remote monitoring technologies to enhance safety in rehabilitation and long-term care settings.
