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 conducts research related to implementation of patient-centred care for choice of next birth after caesarean, choice of contraception, medical abortion practice, and breastfeeding. 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 healthcare decisions.
Dr. Munro completed her postdoctoral training in implementation science with the Canadian Contraception and Abortion Research Team and Dartmouth College.
