Our Division is committed to improving the care of our patient through scholarly activities including clinical research. Here is one of our teams out on the patient floors collecting data related to improve the technology we use for intravenous (IV) lines in our patients. We presented our first phase of this project at IDWeek last year (see poster below) and have just finished collecting data on phase 2 using our updated technology. One part of this team to highlight is that research is not just for our faculty! We have Richard Hankins (internal medicine resident), Jen Cavalieri (research coordinator extraordinaire), Denisa Majorant, MD (ID fellow) and Dr. Kelly Cawcutt (Faculty). Not pictured are Dr. Paul Fey (Microbiology), Elizabeth Lyden(Biostatistician) and Dr. Mark Rupp (Faculty).
