Dr Delphine Labbé's research focuses on promoting full participation and health of people living with disabilities by optimizing their interaction with the social and physical environment. Her community-based research focuses on 3 main area 1) The lived experiences of people with disabilities and the built and social urban environment; 2) Health promotion through recreational and physical activities for people with disabilities of all ages; and 3) the experience with assistive technologies of users and caregivers as determinants of their well-being and participation. She has expertise in Knowledge Translation and is deeply committed to co-construct the knowledge and interventions with people with disabilities and with relevant stakeholders (e.g. urban planners, health care professionals) to produce policy and social changes. Grounded in the social model of disability and the ecosystemic approach, she is using various qualitative and mixed method approaches such as interviews, focus groups, photovoice, Q-methodology, and surveys.
