American Academy of Emergency Medicine, Member, 1998-2000 Research Focus Clinical outcomes research focusing on the treatment of acute atrial fibrillation (AF) in the emergency department (ED). The scope of my research concentrates on practice variations among physicians’ with regards to treatment and embolic prevention in the ED .The development of a predictive guideline for low risk patients with AF that are safe to be discharged from the ED will be the final product. In addition, my research also focuses on meta-analysis and systematic review in collaboration with the Cochrane Heart and Airways group. These interests range from asthma to coronary artery disease to osteoporosis.
