My program of research has focused on improving patient safety among nurses. In particular I focus on nursing care processes to improve the EFFICIENCY of care, provide ETHICAL care, and ensure safe care is EVIDENCE-based. I have conducted several funded studies on improving adverse event reporting system software, managing nursing care around falls management, reducing physical restraints and siderails, improving adverse event disclosure, and assessing safety culture in the nursing home setting. My service work has included working with the National Quality Forum to update their list of Serious Reportable Events to include Long-Term Care as well as working as a Faculty member with Safer Healthcare Now! Initiative in Canada to develop the "Getting Started Kit" for falls management in healthcare settings and also chairing the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario Best Practice Guideline development for Alternatives to Restraint Use.
