Professional Overview


I have been involved in surgical program assessment projects in Cambodia, India, the UK, and the United States. From 2006-2009 I was part of the World Health Organization’s Safe Surgery Saves Lives program. We quantified the global volume of surgery and created, implemented, evaluated, and promoted the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist. My current research focuses on quality and cost effectiveness of care, and strategies for improving the safety and reliability of surgical delivery in resource poor settings.
