Research

Knowledge Translation
Knowledge translation in health care, applying education and knowledge translation theory and practice in designing strategies to close the ‘know-do’ gap. My work includes:
• The co-design of education strategies and knowledge tools/products with knowledge users
• Investigating barriers and enablers to evidence-informed practice to inform strategies to encourage use of evidence in practice
• Application of technologies to support physical and therapeutic activity
• Processes of care and support for shared decision-making between healthcare professionals and patients
