My core research interests relate to quality, barriers to care in the emergency department (ED), and cycling safety and injury prevention. Areas of interrogation have included resident perceptions regarding personal on-call and procedural competence, adverse events and reporting these to supervisors; Comprehension and compliance barriers in emergency department, and Patients who leave the emergency department without being seen.
Projects relating to cycling safety and injury prevention have included a control-matched survey of Toronto bike-share users exploring cycling safety practices and barriers to helmet use; a multi-centered collaboration exploration cycling injuries and the built environment; and an evidence-based review of Canadian cycling injuries and safety policy, leading to co-authorship of the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians Position Paper on Cycling Safety.
