Erin Kirley is a Senior Research Coordinator for the Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. She currently manages two quality improvement/patient safety research projects: the AHRQ funded Quality and Safety Review System Pilot Test in Hospitals; and the PCORI funded project, A Roadmap for Establishing Peer Support Programs in Research and the Real World. Erin also coordinated the development of a curriculum for primary care teams on the collaborative project between the Armstrong Institute and the American Medical Association. The project was part of the AMA’s Improving Health Outcomes initiative, and the objective was to develop a program to help clinicians identify and treat patients with undiagnosed hypertension.
Erin joined the Armstrong Institute in August 2012 as an Administrative Coordinator, providing support on multiple research projects, including a national improvement project to reduce ventilator-associated pneumonia in intensive care units and the Armstrong Institute’s national initiative on surgical safety. Prior to joining the Armstrong Institute, Erin was the Executive Assistant to the Vice President of Facilities for The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System.
