Staff Profile

Charlene Ronquillo

Associate Research Fellow in Implementation Science

Kath Maguire

Drawing from my clinical, professional, and research experiences, I contribute to the growing momentum and capacity in implementation science and support research projects adopted and led by PenCLAHRC, actively identifying and developing research and implementation ideas relevant to PenCLAHRC’s aims, and contributing to the securing of external funding to support these.

I am particularly interested in the development of the science of implementation science and drawing from disciplines beyond health and medicine. As it is a rapidly growing and emerging field, I believe are substantial overlaps between concepts in implementation science and concepts in various other fields (e.g., information systems, management and information science, health informatics, social psychology, and organizational behaviour, among others), particularly related to the adoption, acceptance, and uptake new technologies.

I have clinical background in Nursing and am a Registered Nurse in Canada, the US, and the UK (in process). My research and professional experiences have involved change and implementation in health systems, health informatics, and the human factors aspects of mobile and connected health technologies. In Canada and the UK, I’ve had experience in professional roles that spanned the boundaries and aimed to better link academia and practice. I have been involved with promoting evidence-based practice in nursing, the development and implementation of a knowledge translation and exchange strategic plan across a large health region, supporting the development and write up of numerous grant applications for health service improvement projects on behalf of NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups and clinicians, and brokering relationships between stakeholders in practice and academia. I have experience working on research projects that have employed qualitative, quantitative, and co-production methods. I’ve also had experience with usability research, user-centered design and development, rapid and exploratory prototyping, and wireframing.
