I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the University of British Columbia, and a Scientist with the Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcomes Sciences.
Using qualitative and quantitative methods, I investigate the factors that influence implementation of evidence-based innovations in women’s health care. I am currently leading studies involving the investigation of the factors that support successful implementation of shared decision-making tools for use in the childbearing year and best practices in family planning. I also develop and test tools that support effective patient-oriented knowledge translation, including decision aids and short documentaries. 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.
