FOCUS
Yaminette believes that in order to move toward health equity and human sustainability, healthcare organizations will need to include people in roles such as community health workers, patient navigators, and social workers to help meet the social and health needs of patients. Her research explores how organizations manage these “nontraditional” boundary spanner roles and how work design and employee management practices may impact patient outcomes. She believes that addressing the current gap in managing these roles is crucial for employee health and wellbeing, and as a result for patients.
