Research activities

Dr. Jette has been the recipient of over 50 research, teaching and clinical awards, including the ILAE Ambassador for Epilepsy Award in 2017. As part of her research program, she studies appropriateness and quality-of-care, disparities in care, health outcomes (especially surgical) and psychiatric comorbidities, and determines how best to optimize these outcomes in persons living with epilepsy. Her team uses a variety of data sources (e.g. electronic health records, administrative data, registry data) and statistical approaches to study neurological outcomes and to develop prediction tools and decision models to help clinicians provide the best possible care to persons living with epilepsy and other neurological conditions. She is also involved in knowledge translation research (including development of e-tools and apps) to enhance the dissemination of evidence-based practice to improve epilepsy and other neurological outcomes.
