Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Health care
  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery

Peter J. Pronovost mainly focuses on Health care, Intensive care medicine, Intensive care unit, Intensive care and MEDLINE. His research on Health care focuses in particular on Patient safety. His Intensive care medicine research incorporates elements of Observational study, Incidence, Sepsis, Catheter and Retrospective cohort study.

His work deals with themes such as Cohort study, Staffing, Confidence interval, Emergency medicine and Prospective cohort study, which intersect with Intensive care unit. Peter J. Pronovost has included themes like Ventilator-associated pneumonia, Anesthesiology, Lung injury, Resuscitation and Sedation in his Intensive care study. His MEDLINE research incorporates elements of Risk analysis, Risk management and Medical emergency.

His most cited work include:

  • An intervention to decrease catheter-related bloodstream infections in the ICU (3260 citations)
  • Frailty as a Predictor of Surgical Outcomes in Older Patients (1261 citations)
  • Physician Staffing Patterns and Clinical Outcomes in Critically Ill Patients: A Systematic Review (1193 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Peter J. Pronovost mostly deals with Patient safety, Health care, Intensive care medicine, Nursing and Medical emergency. His work in Patient safety tackles topics such as MEDLINE which are related to areas like Family medicine. Peter J. Pronovost studied Health care and Psychological intervention that intersect with Intervention.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Lung injury, Cohort study and Emergency medicine in addition to Intensive care medicine. His Emergency medicine research focuses on Odds ratio and how it connects with Confidence interval. His study in Intensive care unit is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Critical care nursing, Staffing, Prospective cohort study and Intensive care.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Patient safety (32.98%)
  • Health care (31.92%)
  • Intensive care medicine (27.23%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Health care (31.92%)
  • Patient safety (32.98%)
  • MEDLINE (19.95%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Peter J. Pronovost spends much of his time researching Health care, Patient safety, MEDLINE, Emergency medicine and Quality management. His studies in Health care integrate themes in fields like Process, Public relations, Medical education, Medical emergency and Risk assessment. His Medical emergency research integrates issues from Intensive care unit and Intensive care medicine.

Peter J. Pronovost interconnects Quality, Operations management, Nursing, Accountability and Harm in the investigation of issues within Patient safety. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Pain control, Surgery, Retrospective cohort study, Outpatient clinic and Family medicine. The Emergency medicine study combines topics in areas such as Psychological intervention, Medical prescription, Cohort study, Prospective cohort study and Physical therapy.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Prescription Opioid Analgesics Commonly Unused After Surgery: A Systematic Review. (341 citations)
  • Prescription Opioid Analgesics Commonly Unused After Surgery: A Systematic Review. (341 citations)
  • Teamwork in healthcare: Key discoveries enabling safer, high-quality care. (132 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Health care
  • Surgery

His main research concerns Emergency medicine, Health care, Medical prescription, Psychological intervention and MEDLINE. His Emergency medicine study incorporates themes from Mortality rate, Prospective cohort study, Retrospective cohort study, Medication adherence and Physical therapy. His Health care research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Quality, Public relations, Medical education, Teamwork and Risk assessment.

His studies deal with areas such as Odds ratio, Randomized controlled trial, Quality of life and Intensive care unit as well as Psychological intervention.
