The investigators

Antoine DUCLOS, MD-PhD – Public Health – Principal Investigator

Pr. Duclos’s work contributes to improving the public hospitals care by measuring, interpreting and controlling surgical outcomes. This includes the development of indicators and graphical tools to guide surgical teams towards a better understanding of their outcomes. It also involves exploring the surgeons’ performance curve throughout their careers with the aim of identifying factors that can improve the quality, safety and efficiency of surgical management.
