Dr Jeremy Grimshaw received a MBChB (MD equivalent) from the University of Edinburgh, UK. He trained as a family physician prior to undertaking a PhD in health services research at the University of Aberdeen. He moved to Canada in 2002. His research focuses on the evaluation of interventions to disseminate and implement evidence-based practice. Dr. Grimshaw is a Senior Scientist, Clinical Epidemiology Program, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, a Full Professor in the Department of Medicine, University of Ottawa and a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Health Knowledge Transfer and Uptake. He is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences and a Corresponding Fellow of the Royal College of Edinburgh. He is Director of Cochrane Canada and formerly was the Co-coordinating Editor of the Cochrane Effective Practice and Organisation of Care group. He was also the Principal Investigator of Knowledge Translation Canada (KT CANADA), a CIHR and CFI funded interdisciplinary network of over 50 knowledge translation researchers from six academic health science centres in three provinces. He has over 450 peer reviewed publications.
“I enjoyed the examples of implementation. Also the case studies involving the application of various implementation strategies brought it to life and showed the complexity and need for interdisciplinary approaches.”
“Engaging! Lots of examples of models and research studies.
