  • HIV Quality of Care

    Dr. Stephen Berry’s research focuses on healthcare quality, safety and costs among persons living with HIV, both in the outpatient and inpatient settings. He conducts observational and interventional studies of sexually transmitted infection screening in HIV clinics, with a focus on improving performance to meet national guidelines. He leads observational studies of rates and reasons for hospitalizations and of 30-day readmission rates among HIV patients. He is conducting a randomized study of a nurse- and pharmacist-based team to reduce inpatient HIV medication errors and increase engagement in outpatient care among persons living with HIV who are hospitalized at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

  • Michael A. Rosen Lab

    Research in the Michael A. Rosen Lab primarily focuses on patient safety and simulation-based health care training and technology. Recent work provided examples of how human factors experts can collaborate with health care professionals and simulationists (experts in the design and implementation of simulation) to use contemporary simulation to improve health care delivery. Another recent study examined the anesthesia practice at two tertiary care hospitals in Sierra Leone, West Africa, where anesthesia is associated with high mortality rates. We identified gaps in the application of internationally recommended anesthesia practices at both hospitals, likely caused by lack of available resources.

    Research Areas: simulations, patient safety, quality improvement, anesthesia, quality of care

  • Raquel Greer Lab

    Work in the Raquel Greer Lab focuses primarily on health disparities in chronic kidney disease. Our most recent research explored the challenges perceived by primary care providers in educating patients about chronic kidney disease as well as physicians’ views on barriers to adequate preparation of patients for renal replacement therapy. We also are interested in examining how clinical-patient communication can impact quality of care in the primary care setting.

    Research Areas: primary care, kidney diseases, patient-provider relationships

  • Sallie Weaver Lab

    Work in the Sallie Weaver Lab investigates the range of organizational factors that affect a health care team’s performance. In particular, our research focuses on leadership, organizational culture and teamwork within and between teams. Our team also explores interventions that are designed to improve quality of care and patient safety. Some of our recent research topics include team-training in health care, the relationship between CLABSI rates and patient safety, and rapid-response systems as a patient-safety strategy.

    Research Areas: patient safety, organizational dynamics, intervention, quality of care

  • Samantha Pitts Lab

    Research in the Samantha Pitts Lab focuses on care safety and quality in ambulatory patients. Specifically, our activities have included applying the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) in office-based practices and improving the delivery of evidence-based care through clinical care teams.

  • Sean Berenholtz Lab

    Work in the Sean Berenholtz Lab focuses on patient safety, ICU care, quality health care and evidence-based medicine. Two notable and successful projects include the National On The Cusp: Stop BSI project, which was implemented in 47 states with the goal of eliminating bloodstream infections, and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)-funded Keystone ICU project, which improved communication and teamwork and reduced hospital-acquired infections in more than 100 ICUs in Michigan. One recent study focused on ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), one of the most common type of health care-associated infections in the ICU. Existing VAP prevention intervention bundles vary widely on the interventions, but our research team described a structured approach for developing a new VAP prevention bundle.

  • Sydney Dy Lab

    The Sydney Dy Lab has conducted extensive research on quality of care, patient safety and decision-making, with a focus on patients with cancer and other serious and terminal diseases. Our team seeks to improve health systems and services to optimize the use of technology and medication, particularly in end-of-life health care policy. Our research approach includes primary and quantitative data collection, quality measurement improvement, systematic literature reviews and analysis of secondary database.

    Research Areas: patient safety, palliative care, cancer, health care policy, pain, quality of care
