Research interests

My research focus is quality and safety of patient care in acute and hospital settings. Specific research interests include interprofessional clinical communication and handover; care of older persons in acute settings; performance of frontline interprofessional health care teams; patient participation in the health care delivery; and supporting sustainable changes in day to day clinical practices and hospital activities. My research to date has examined patient and family needs in critical illness, interprofessional teamwork and handover communication in complex clinical settings (recovery rooms and emergency departments), redesign models of care in emergency department and acute medicine, clinical engagement in service improvement and research, a model for interprofessional teamwork for older person care, preventing  harms of hospitalisation for the older person in acute care, development and application of health policy, and innovations in models of care to deliver increased quality and safety and a high performing health system.
