Janet Squires


University Research Chair in Health Evidence Implementation

Faculty of Health Sciences
School of Nursing 

Dr. Squires’ research is primarily focused on improving knowledge translation by healthcare professionals. Her current research centers on the design, implementation, and evaluation of theory-informed and context-optimized interventions to increase healthcare professionals’ use of research and research-based behaviours as a strategy to contribute to improved patient and system outcomes. Her research program has four main foci: (1) exploring organizational context and its role in knowledge translation, (2) designing and testing theory-informed interventions to change healthcare professionals’ behaviours, (3) measurement and survey design/psychometrics, and (4) systematic reviews. She is currently involved in several nationally funded projects examining the role of context in knowledge translation and developing and testing interventions to change behaviour of healthcare professionals (e.g., increasing organ donation in adult hospitals, improving hand hygiene practice in adult hospitals, improving pain practices in pediatric hospitals, and improving resident outcomes in nursing homes).
