Dr. Annette Schultz's research interests primarily focus on health services and policy contexts in relation to health priorities. While individuals’ behaviors and their social and economic locations play a role in health status, health systems and policies also play a dynamic role. Since 2014, she became involved within the field of Indigenous health: heart health, cancer incidence, storytelling methods, maternal/child health are examples. Previously her research focused on exploring tobacco use issues, management, and control in the context of health care services and policies, where foci included smoke free grounds policies in acute care settings, management of tobacco dependence within acute care, youth susceptibility for future smoking, and health equity and social justice issues.
Dr. Schultz is a professor in the College of Nursing, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences.
Her nursing career spans nearly four decades and includes working in direct pediatric patient care positions, policy research with the College of Registered Nurses in British Columbia, and research focused on health care services and policies.
As an independent Canadian academic researcher since 2005, she has productively led several national teams of investigators, policy-makers, practitioners, community members and Elders; and is a mentor with the Prairie Indigenous Knowledge Exchange Network (PIKE-Net) Mentorship Program.
