Dr. Ablordeppey’s interests center around the behavioral and systems adaptations that must occur to ultimately help improve health outcomes in critically ill patients. Currently, she is focused on the effects of ultrasound applications on clinical outcomes, including the perceptions and use of bedside ultrasound in critical care environments, its effect on patient safety, and on hospital resource utilization. As critical care evolves to incorporate more ultrasound-based applications, initiatives to translate these advances into clinical practice are needed. Understanding the evidence-to-practice pipeline, how to identify areas for improvement, and how to craft interventions that will be successfully implemented into clinical practice, are key.
