Investigation of early warning signs of problematic behaviours by physicians

Amani Oakley of the law firm of Oakley & Oakley has generously provided C-QUIPS with a $50,000 donation to support patient safety research. This donation came from a medical malpractice settlement involving injuries and unnecessary operations on a large number of women by an individual gynecologist. This donation will be used to support work led by Dr. Chaim Bell.
