Dr. Munro is a qualitative health services researcher whose focus is on knowledge translation and implementation science. Her research focuses on the investigation of factors that influence implementation of patient-centred practice and policy, and the development and evaluation of tools that support shared decision-making for patients and their care teams. Dr. Munro is currently involved in studies related to implementation of patient-centred care for choice of next birth after caesarean, choice of contraception, medical abortion practice, and non-invasive prenatal testing. Through this research, Dr. Munro partners closely with stakeholders (patients, health care professionals, and policy makers) to produce evidence that is action-oriented, relevant, and supports patients and their care teams to make informed, shared health care decisions. Dr. Munro has a joint postdoctoral fellowship appointment with the Contraception and Abortion Research Team in the UBC Department of Family Practice (Supervisor: Dr. Wendy Norman) and the Preference Laboratory at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice, Dartmouth College, USA (Supervisor: Dr. Rachel Thompson). Her fellowship is supported by a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Trainee award.
