Anik Giguere did her PhD in Biology at INRS in Quebec. After obtaining her doctorate, she worked as research associate at the Research Centre of Excellence in Aging where she developed an interest for Knowledge translation and knowledge synthesis. In 2010, Anik began her postdoctoral training within the Research Chair in Implementation of Shared Decision Making in Primary Care, under the supervision of Drs Michel Labrecque and France Légaré. In 2011, she obtained a fellowship from APOGEE-Net/CanGèneTest, to develop Decision boxes: specialized clinical summaries to prepare health professionals to discuss scientific evidence with their patients so they can make a decision together. With the support of a fellowship from the Knowledge Translation Canada (KT Canada) research network, Anik then worked on the implementation of the Decision box at McMaster University in Hamilton as postdoctoral research fellow under supervision of Dr. R. Brian Haynes. At the end of this fellowship, in January 2013, Anik became a researcher of the Research Centre of Excellence in Aging, where she pursues her research program in Knowledge Translation.
