Myles Leslie Lab

  • Work in the Myles Leslie Lab examines the factors that influence front-line health care delivery by exploring the policy, institutional, professional and technological contexts of health care systems. Our team works to identify the cultural factors that affect the transfer of quality and safety interventions from one facility to another. We also examine how culture impacts the front-line implementation of policymakers’ intentions. We're currently part of a multisite project that studies patients and family involvement in intensive care delivery.

    Research Areas: patient safety, ethnography, health IT, quality of care, information technology
