Dr. Sarah Munro is a qualitative health services researcher in knowledge translation and implementation science. She completed her PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of British Columbia (UBC) where her research focused on the development and evaluation of tools that support shared decision-making for patients and their care teams, and the investigation of factors that influence implementation of patient-centred practice and policy.
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, 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. She is also a scientist with the Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcomes Science (CHÉOS) and holds a joint post-doctoral fellowship with UBC Department of Family Practice and the Preference Laboratory at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice, Dartmouth College, USA. Her fellowship is supported by a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Trainee award.
