Description of Research
I am interested in developing, studying and assessing innovative teaching modalities for adult learners, primarily with simulation-based exercises, theories based in organizational behavior, and with web-based technology. Improving the effectiveness of our learning creates opportunities for further exploration and creativity; it improves our communication, teamwork, professional satisfaction and ultimately the quality of our patient care.
My clinical research has been centered on improving our care of obstetric patients, including high-risk patients with preeclampsia, cardiomyopathy and other co-existing illnesses. I am also developing interdisciplinary and multi-institutional patient safety initiatives and studying the effects of different types of drills, use of check-lists, etc.
In all aspects of my work I take great pride and pleasure in mentoring residents, fellows and junior faculty with case reports and research projects. They have had opportunities to present their work at national and international meetings, and to prepare manuscripts for publication.
