New faculty and research innovations highlighted at Year-End Health Systems Innovation Meeting

Year end meeting

More than 140 members of the Ariadne Labs community gathered for the annual Year-End Health Systems Innovation Meeting in June to learn about ongoing research and welcome new faculty members.

Following a “one-slide, five-minute” format, 11 physicians and researchers from the Ariadne Labs associate and affiliate faculty presented their ongoing work in a variety of clinical and health managements areas, ranging from preventing bloodstream infections in children with cancer, to having serious illness conversations with dialysis patients, and the impact of surgeons’ non-technical skills on the outcome of surgery.
