I am a health services researcher whose focus is knowledge translation science and practice in women's health care.

 

Using qualitative and quantitative methods, I develop and evaluate tools that support shared decision-making for patients and their care teams, and investigate factors that influence the implementation of patient-centred practice and policy. I engage with knowledge partners (patients, health care professionals, and policy makers) in collaborative health services research that is action-oriented, relevant, and focused on impactful solutions. Together we develop evidence to support patients and their care teams to make informed, shared healthcare decisions.

My current research involves the investigation of implementation of shared decision-making for birth after caesarean section, patient-oriented knowledge translation with online decision aids, and implementation of best practices in family planning. I currently hold a joint postdoctoral fellowship between The Preference Laboratory (Dartmouth College) and the Contraception Access Team (University of British Columbia).
