Dr. John Oliffe is a Senior Research Advisor at CGSHE, and Professor at the School of Nursing, University of British Columbia.

As founder and lead investigator of UBC’s Men’s Health Research program, his work focuses on masculinities as it influences men’s health behaviours including help-seeking and illness management, and its impact on partners, families and overall life quality. Attracting more than $27 million in research funding and producing 300 publications his research program has advanced significant insights to male depression and suicidality, psychosocial prostate cancer and smoking cessation amid contributing tailored community-based and e-health programs to augment traditional health care services. Findings drawn from his research offer salient guidance to clinicians and researchers who work with men.
