Research Activities

The overall goal of my research program is to advance the science of knowledge translation† (KT) for patients through understanding, measuring and evaluating the effectiveness of KT interventions for patients and by evaluating strategies to enhance patient engagement in shared decision making (SDM). Specific objectives for the research program are as follows:
a) Develop and evaluate KT interventions in English and French designed to improve the quality of health decisions and measure their effect on patient outcomes;
b) Establish best practices to implement and sustain use of KT interventions to support patient involvement in making health decisions;
c) Conduct ongoing updates of systematic reviews to synthesize the evidence on KT interventions (e.g. patient decision aids, decision coaching), and approaches to enhance SDM in practice.
