I often tackle issues that are complex, take a lot of time and do not lend themselves to “quick fixes.” These are the same issues that general pediatricians and family practitioners, educators and parents experience within their daily lives. This is why I often like to collaborate with others to brainstorm and design practical solutions.
Below is a list of areas I focus on:
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Postpartum depression
- Positive parenting
- Developmental delays in speech and language
My research examines new and innovative ways to tackle these issues in busy pediatric clinics, often using health information technology or individual or systems-level interventions. In particular, I do not just pay attention as to how pediatric providers identify these issues but what they can do next.
