My clinical and research interests are focused on the care of children with medical and surgical emergencies including trauma. My current work is focused on procedural sedation bronchiolitis and the care of children with cancer and fever. Children in the emergency department (ED) often must undergo painful procedures. I am working on a national committee to establish best practices for pediatric procedural sedation. The focus of my work in bronchiolitis is to avoid unnecessary testing and treatments in this very common condition. Many traditional treatments and tests add cost and do not improve patient outcomes. I am working with a Duke Quality Improvement Team to ensure children coming to our ED with cancer and fever (a potentially life-threatening condition) consistently receive care reflecting recently developed national benchmarks. The common threads to my work are evidence-based care and quality improvement.
