[My research focuses on evaluating how the organization of work affects outcomes of infants in the neonatal intensive care unit. There are significant variations in rates of mortality and morbidity of preterm infants among neonatal intensive care units in Canada. Important contributors to these variations in
outcomes include variations in practice and in the organization of the units. Using clinical and administrative databases, we are studying the effects of different healthcare delivery models, team composition and resource allocation (nurse-to-patient ratios, physician-to-patient ratios and other healthcare providers) on quality of care and efficiency in the neonatal intensive care unit. The main objective is to improve quality of care and improve efficiency in the delivery of care. Further, I conduct collaborative research with the Canadian Neonatal Network (CNN), the Evidence-based Practice for Improving Quality (EPIQ) and the Canadian Neonatal Follow Up Network (CNFUN) with the aim of better understanding predictors of neonatal outcomes and improving quality of care of preterm infants.
