Dr. Janet Jull develops and evaluates shared decision making tools and approaches to support client-centred care in partnerships with First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, with a particular focus on cancer and health care systems. 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 by and with those the research is meant to be of benefit.

Currently accepting MSc and PhD students (RHBS and AGHE) in the areas of:

  • shared decision making
  • integrated knowledge translation, partnership-based approaches to research
