Bio

I'm a physician-scientist interested in understanding and promoting physician and patient behaviors that impact the quality and safety of patient care. In particular, I conduct NIH and foundation supported research in two areas: (1) Strategies for measuring and promoting safety culture and medical professionalism, (2) Strategies to increase patient activation among patients with chronic diseases. My colleagues and I developed of the Speaking Up Climate for Patient Safety (SUC-Safe) Scale and Speaking Up Climate for Professionalism (SUC-Prof) Scale (goo.gl/awk9Z3) which measures the extent the clinical environment supports and promotes healthcare professionals speaking up about patient safety and professionalism concerns.
