Research interests

Clinical Associate Professor Baker's research focuses on the activity and performance of small rural emergency departments: where and when patients present, why they present, the type of practitioner that sees them and the investigations and procedures that they perform, what the final diagnosis is and where the patient goes to next. This baseline data can then be used to develop innovative solutions to the problem of delivering emergency care in isolated settings. He is also interested in health literacy in emergency situations, particularly with chest pain. Do rural residents know where and when to access emergency care?
