Patient Care Philosophy

I approach work with a positive attitude and strive to maintain collegial and mutual respect with my coworkers. Recently, I have published cases studies that have been unique to our department with multidisciplinary professionals. I have learned to examine my practice so that I may continue to learn in an academic setting. I am an active participant in our continuous safety improvement program, which is the focus of my current research.
