My clinical practice has involved caring for patients and families at Level I Trauma Centers. It happened together with the development of trauma systems in the U.S. I marvel at all the progress that has occurred in the field of trauma care.
Clinical interests include technology and error reduction, breaking bad news, evidence-based practice, and clinical competency.
My research explored use of technology and technology acceptance related to health promotion and risk reduction. The focus was mercury toxicity. My interest has expanded to include safety of the food supply and food allergy as chronic illness.
