Mary McBride, BA, MSc
Mary McBride is an epidemiologist, health services researcher, and Distinguished Research Scientist in Cancer Control Research at the British Columbia Cancer Agency (BCCA), Vancouver, Canada; and Clinical Professor in the School of Population and Public Health, University of British Columbia (UBC). She is also co-lead, Health Services and Policy Research, for the Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control, funded by the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute.
Her research includes epidemiologic, clinical, and health system perspectives on cancer survivorship issues, and coordination of oncology and primary care for cancer patients throughout the cancer care trajectory. She has a particular interest in the care of young people diagnosed with cancer, and women diagnosed with breast cancer, throughout the cancer care trajectory.
She oversees two major research programs which operate from discovery (risks and predictors of long-term adverse effects of cancer and its treatment), to impact on care (healthcare utilization and predictors of healthcare need), to policy and practice change (models of care to support quality care), using unique research platforms that link population registries to clinical and administrative databases in health, education, income and employment.
