Research interests

Dr. LeBlanc`s research centers around the way healthcare is delivered in clinical encounters between clinicians and patients. Specifically, she focuses on the translation of comparative effectiveness research (CER) into practice through the design, evaluation, implementation, and sustainability of patient-centered interventions, such as shared decision making (SDM), and their impact on patient important outcomes. This work is crucial to the advancement of patient-centered care and high value healthcare. Of importance to the success of this work, is the engagement of stakeholders throughout each stages of the work to insure that the research processes and outcomes are focused on what really matters to patients and other stakeholders, thus optimizing sustainability of the targeted changes. To execute on this research focus, she has advanced three main expertise domains: i) application of user-centered methods to develop patient-centered interventions, ii) design and conduct of pragmatic randomized trials to assess the effectiveness of these interventions, and iii) design and conduct of mixed methods studies to understand their implementation and sustained normalization in practice. Dr. LeBlanc is a well-published author and her work has been supported by local, national, and international foundations and organizations.
