Her program of research focusses on the quality of life of children with neurodisabilities and their caregivers (i.e. caregiver health, and parenting). Dr. Lach's current projects address social determinants of health of children with neurodisabiltiies. She is co-leading a team of researchers and trainees whose projects have been funded by Kids Brain Health Network (KBHN) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) to document determinants such as income, service use, educational outcomes, and uptake of income supports such as the Disability Tax Credit using population-based as well as administrative and clinical databases. She is also collaborating with Dr. David Nicholas to increase capacity in navigation systems that support families of children with neurodisabilities in Vancouver, Edmonton and Yellowknife. In addition, she is part of a recently funded Strategic Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) Team entitled CHILDBRIGHT, and is co-leading (along with Dr. Patrick McGrath) development and implementation of a randomized controlled trial entitled Strongest Families – Neurodevelopment. This project is evaluating a web-based program that combines group coaching and educational modules, with parent-to-parent support for parents whose children have a neurodisability and mental health concerns.[[[TK1]>>url:file:///G:/Team%20Drives/Communications%20and%20KT-%20CAPHC/Spark%20-%20Live/Webinars/2019%20Webinars/Strongest%20Families%20-%20Child-Bright/ChildrensHealthcareCanada_webinar_StrongestFamilies_20190109.docx#_msocom_1||name="_msoanchor_1" style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"]] Dr. Lach is a peer-reviewer for numerous journals and organizations that provide research funding.
