Anik Giguère leads an interdisciplinary team in the design and evaluation of knowledge transfer tools to promote the independence of older adults and their families in clinical decision-making. The team's work aims to improve health services through continuing professional development, clinical evidence summaries and patient decision aids. The team is studying methods to design these tools (needs assessment, rapid review, user-centered design) to ultimately provide user-friendly tools that will enhance the quality of life of older adults and their loved ones.


The development of the Decision Boxes and the research to evaluate this approach have been funded by the following organisations:
