Dr. Liddy is an investigator with the C.T. Lamont Primary Health Care Research Centre. Her research focuses on implementation issues related to chronic disease management and prevention in Ontario. On her research agenda are issues related to best practices, models of care, improving quality of care, knowledge translation as they relate to chronic disease. Chronic disease care is a very important area of research and there is much to be done to bridge the divisions between what is known, what is done, and where the focus of the policymakers lies.
Dr. Liddy continues to practice family medicine with the Riverside Family Health Team and is an Assistant Professor with the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Ottawa.
