She is interested in what patients value in their healthcare experiences, particularly in developing countries such as the Caribbean and its diaspora. Her PhD research involves the application of an economic model of utility to attempt to understand what attributes of person-centered care are most valued by patients with chronic low back pain in the Caribbean and how these patients make decisions regarding their choice of healthcare providers. She also blogs about her PhD journey into the realm of person-centered care, discussing concepts, philosophies, and viewpoints and sharing about her own experiences as a healthcare provider in the clinic.
Carla is an avid outdoorswoman. In her spare time, she’s often hiking or cycling or doing some form of outdoor exploration which she uses as her own therapy and self-care…a critical strategy in the life of a modern-day healthcare worker!
