Project Lead(s)

Janet Jull

Position: Queen's University

Dr. Janet Jull develops and evaluates shared decision making tools and approaches to support client-centred care with a particular focus on health care systems. Much of Janet’s work is done in partnerships with urban Indigenous, Inuit, First Nations, and Métis communities.

Janet also investigates how research is conducted in partnerships; specifically when those who are engaged in the production of research, partner with those who contend with the real-world needs and constraints of health systems and their users.

Areas of teaching expertise include design and conduct of research and knowledge translation, specifically integrated knowledge translation, an approach to research that is governed by and with those the research is meant to be of benefit.
