Support teaching, research, and patient care.
My primary research interest is the effect of health system design on quality of care and outcomes for sick newborns. This interest includes health care delivery design at the macro-system level as well as organizational context at the hospital and neonatal intensive care unit level. In addition, I am interested in the use of information technology to support families, care professionals, and policy makers in their efforts to provide optimal care to sick infants.
Strategies to promote health care provider well being and improve quality of care
Health care workers, patients and families in the neonatal intensive care unit setting
Achieving care excellence for sick newborns and their families across the state
California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative
Newborns and mothers across California
Tech de Monterrey
Funded by NIH R01 grants:1) Development and application of composite measure of NICU quality - Baby-MONITOR2) High reliability, safety culture and caregiver resilience as modifiers of care quality3) Modifiable racial/ethnic disparities in quality of care delivery4) Effectiveness of regionalized care delivery systems for preterm newborns
Web-based Implementation for the Science of Enhancing Resilience Study
Resilience means a healthcare provider's ability to cope, recover, and learn from stressful
events, as well as their access to resources that promote health and well-being. Neonatal
intensive care unit (NICU) health professionals' need to have particularly good resilience,
because their work is extremely stressful and their patients, fragile preterm infants,
require their undivided attention. The investigators propose a feasible and engaging
intervention to enhance resilience among NICU health professionals promoting their ability to
provide safe care.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
