Stephanie is an occupational therapist whose clinical work centred in pediatrics. Her passion for evidence-informed practice led her to work with the Evidence Centre at Sunny Hill Health Centre at BC Children's Hospital as a knowledge broker, facilitating the use of best evidence among clinicians, leaders, and students. She has a particular interest in digital health and interactive technologies, such as virtual reality and serious games for rehabilitation. Her work also considers the impact of social influences on change initiatives.
Dr. Glegg's program of research focuses on knowledge translation and implementation science - examining the factors that influence the exchange and use of knowledge to improve health care services, systems and outcomes, and testing the effectiveness of tailored interventions to facilitate change. Examples of applications of her mixed methods approaches include the study of technology adoption for rehabilitation, longitudinal monitoring of the implementation and scale up of addiction treatment and harm reduction strategies to address the toxic drug poisoning crisis, and the use of social network analysis to examine the patterns of social connections among individuals, organizations and groups and how they influence or can be targeted to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of knowledge sharing and uptake of best practices.
