Clinical Interest for Patients
I have a particular interest in the management on mild blunt head injury and concussions focusing on the role of the Emergency Department as the first opportunity to help children achieve a speedy, safe and complete recovery.

Care Philosophy
I aim to provide family-centered evidence-based care for ill and injured children. Shared decision-making informed by sound medical knowledge and the child and parents' wishes and values is the best way to speed kids to recovery.

Personal Interests
My personal time is spent snowboarding, hiking, road and mountain biking. I also enjoy spending time with my kids and tending to my koi pond.

Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
I have a particular interest in the cognitive psychology of human decision-making and its impact on clinical reasoning and patient harm. Improving our understanding of the role of heuristics in clinical judgment and how these heuristics systematically and predictably fail diagnosticians is a critical component to improving patient safety.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
I am interested in improving the management of mild traumatic brain injury in children presenting to the ED by understanding barriers to follow-up care and the benefits that care provides.
