Current Research:
Dr. Eady's current research focuses on patient and family engagement in health professions education, health services, program evaluation, and research. 
Dr. Eady’s research is grounded in the fields of health professions education and health services. She is experienced in assessment, curriculum and program development, and program evaluation, and has expertise in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods approaches. Her specific research interests include engaging patients and families in health professions education, health services, program evaluation, and research; using participatory and collaborative program evaluation approaches in health professions education; and exploring the use of qualitative approaches and methods in health professions education, program evaluation, and research. Dr. Eady’s doctoral dissertation exemplifies these interests, where she examined health professionals’, patients’, and family members’ perceptions, experiences, and knowledge of family involvement in inpatient traumatic brain injury rehabilitation. This research identified the need for the future creation and investigation of interdisciplinary educational programs to improve stakeholders’ awareness and understanding of family involvement. It also highlighted the need to understand how to operationalize patient- and family-centred philosophy in inpatient rehabilitation settings and close the gap between theory and practice.
