Kathryn Birnie, PhD RPsych

My research focuses on improving the assessment and management of acute, postsurgical, and chronic pain experienced by children, adolescents, and their families. My research spans the knowledge-to-action continuum including creating new knowledge, synthesizing existing evidence, and translating knowledge to inform health practice and policy. I collaborate with multi-stakeholder teams (patients, families, decision-makers, healthcare providers) to co-design and evaluate psychological interventions and health services in pain.
