Marie-Anne Durand is a health psychologist with a doctoral degree in medicine and a longstanding interest in evidence-based public health and applied health services research. Her primary research interests lie in healthcare communication, health disparities, self-management and shared decision making. She has extensive research and evaluation expertise in shared decision making and communication in healthcare, as well as change management and quality improvement experience in the public sector in the United Kingdom and France.
Durand is the principal investigator on a shared decision making research project comparing care that incorporates the use of two decision aids—an Option Grid™ and a Picture Option Grid™—with usual care received by women newly diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer. In 2016, the team received a $2-million funding award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) for the three-year, multi-site project which may change the way women and doctors make decisions about breast cancer surgery.
Durand completed an MSc and MPhil in clinical and health psychology at the University Pierre Mendes France and a PhD in medicine and health psychology at the Cardiff University School of Medicine.
