A compilation of professional and academic accomplishments and recognition in the popular press.
- The Bay Area Cooling Summit was hosted by Stanford on March 14, 2017 and coordinated by our NeuroNICU team. Invited speakers included Bill Benitz, MD, Krisa Van Meurs, MD, and Valerie Chock, MD, MS Epi.
- Because of their success with grant funding, several junior faculty members from our Division, including Adam Frymoyer, MD, Henry Lee, MD MS Epi, and Valerie Chock, MD MS Epi, were invited to be panelists for the Stanford Pediatric Mentoring Program workshop about "NIH Award Preparation.”
- Henry Lee, MD, MS Epi, Jeff Gould, MD, MPH, Ciaran Phibbs, PhD, and Jochen Profit, MD, MPH, are authors on a paper published in the Journal of Perinatology (March 2017) that investigates neonatal transfer networks in California and considers how differences in the organization of neonatal care may contribute to variation in outcomes. Network analysis has been used to examine transports in the adult ICU setting, but this paper is one of the first applications of this technique to neonatal care. Currently, our multidisciplinary team of neonatologists, computer scientists, and biostatisticians are continuing to expand our understanding of neonatal regionalization and its effects.
- The Safety Learning Laboratory for Neonatal and Maternal Care, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ, PI: Halamek), published a study in American Journal of Perinatology Reports on communication in labor and delivery. Investigators in three clinical disciplines that work in the delivery room – obstetrics, anesthesia, and neonatology – collaborated on this work. Using in situ simulation, or simulation in the actual setting where patient care occurs, the investigators studied inefficiencies in communication among physicians and nurses during obstetrical scenarios. Our findings can help to inform training and development of protocols or devices that may improve communication.
