Sarah Munro

Dr. Sarah 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 the 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. Munro conducts research related to the implementation of patient-centred care for the choice of next birth after cesarean, choice of contraception, medical abortion practice, and breastfeeding. Through this research, she partners closely with stakeholders (patients, health care professionals, and policymakers) to produce evidence that is action-oriented, relevant, and supports patients and their care teams to make informed, shared healthcare decisions.

Munro completed her postdoctoral training in implementation science with the Canadian Contraception and Abortion Research Team and Dartmouth College. She is currently an assistant professor in the UBC Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, an MSFHR Scholar, and program head of knowledge translation at the Centre for Health Evaluation and Outcome Sciences.
