Dr. Katie Sheehan inspires global audience at ISQUA Tokyo

Dr. Katie Sheehan gave a podium presentation “Hospital mortality by teaching status of treating hospital” at the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQUA) Meeting in Tokyo, Japan. This study, based on a recently published article in CMAJ, compares the risk of hospital death between patients treated in teaching and community hospitals. The study finds that a higher proportion of hip fracture patients die at non-teaching compared to teaching hospitals after accounting for length of stay.
