Personal profile

Research interests

I lead the Centre for Evidence-Informed Health Decisions. Our research is primarily focussed on helping people to make informed decisions about health – including health professionals, patients, and the public. 

The research that is aimed at health professionals includes developing and evaluating strategies and tools to increase the awareness and usability of evidence about interventions and skills for incorporating this into conversations with patients.

The Centre’s interdisciplinary research draws upon the areas of shared decision making, evidence-based practice, health communication, knowledge translation, and public health.
