Congratulations to Dr. Trevor Skutezky on his successful CAEP grant

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Trevor Skutezky, RCPS-EM Resident, and co-investigator Dr. Corinne Hohl, Associate Professor, as they recently received a $5,000 grant through the CAEP Research Committee to support their research project “Improving patient care by engaging Emergency Department staff in a participatory design of a Patient Safety Event reporting platform at an urban tertiary care hospital.”

Patient Safety Events (PSEs) are unwanted or unexpected events that occur during medical care. PSE under-reporting is common; thus, the true rate and nature of PSEs in the ED remain unknown. The study objective is to develop a new mechanism to capture comprehensive, reliable and high-quality data on PSEs for quality improvement, research and surveillance.
