We are pleased to congratulate the BC Children's and BC Women's investigators who were awarded funding through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Project Grant Spring 2019 competition. Our research community received nine new research and bridge grants totaling more than $5.8 million.
I am clinically involved at BCCH in the care of children with congenital heart disease. I have a strong interest and significant training and experience in pediatric anesthesia, specifically pediatric cardiac anesthesia. My primary focus of research and education is the use of simulation training in healthcare, focusing on clinical, multi-professional courses, and faculty development.

Clinical Intensive Care
I am a co-founder of the European Simulation Collaboration (http://www.eusim.org) and have been running Basic and Advanced Simulation Train-the-Trainers Courses since 2005. This initial partnership of 3 simulator centres has now increased with partnership centres in many countries including Holland, Norway, Finland, Switzerland, Portugal and Mexico. I have taught many of these international courses. Based on this experience, I am currently developing a series of multidisciplinary simulations, held directly in the operating room, to improve non-technical skills & teamwork at BCCH. Our goal is to investigate their role in reducing errors and inefficiency in the operating room.
I am leading adaptation of the PediCrisis management checklists/guidelines to BCCH practices, to help local healthcare providers during critical events such as pediatric cardiac arrest and anaphylaxis. We are implementing these checklists, to be used in all anesthesia areas at BCCH, and plan to evaluate their usefulness through audits in the near future.
Dexmedetomidine Sedation in PACU following Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization – following a retrospective review I am initiating a prospective randomized controlled study to investigate any benefits to Dexmedetomidine in pediatric patients who have undergone cardiac catheter procedures.Honours & Awards
In 2012, I was successfully nominated to become a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (UK) – Awarded 2013.
In 2008 and again in 2009 I received peer reviewed Clinical Excellence awards from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust.
