I am a staff physician at St Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. I am cross-trained in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care, and work clinically in both areas. I am an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Medicine, at the University of Toronto.
I am an Adjunct Scientist at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, and my research focuses on optimizing care of critically ill patients in the ED, and on improving patient outcomes through the ED-ICU continuum.
Specifically, I study knowledge translation around sepsis, targeted temperature management, alcohol withdrawal, cardiac arrest, mental preparedness, stress management and resuscitation.
I am also the Medical Director for Emergency Preparedness for St Michael’s Hospital, and work on developing and training best practices in hospital disaster preparedness.
Lastly, I am the past chair of C4 (the CAEP Critical Care Committee), which is Canada’s national group of combined EM-ICU people. Drop me a line if you want to join.
