Dr. Loewen does patient-oriented research to help patients use drugs more effectively and to help clinicians prescribe drugs more appropriately. His work focuses mainly on cardiovascular diseases, including heart failure, coronary artery disease, and atrial fibrillation. Dr. Loewen is particularly interested in how patients' medication-taking behaviours, beliefs, satisfaction, and interactions with care providers affect clinical outcomes. His work generates evidence to help care providers and policymakers make better decisions and policies to improve patient outcomes. Dr. Loewen also make tools that can be used by clinicians in everyday practice to make better decisions.

His group uses various methods including observational (population-based, prospective, and cross-sectional) designs, advanced modelling methods, systematic reviews, qualitative, and decision analysis.
