    Bryan is the Director of the Duke Center for Healthcare Safety and Quality.  He leads the efforts around research and training that guide our quality improvement and well-being activities.  

    A psychologist member of the Department of Psychiatry, Bryan is a psychometrician and spends time developing methods of assessing and improving safety culture, teamwork, leadership and especially work-force well-being.  Currently, he is disseminating the results from a successful NIH R01 grant that used RCTs to show that we can cause enduring improvements in healthcare worker well-being.

    A ridiculously proud father of four, he enjoys running, using hand tools on wood, books on Audible, and over-reacting to a friendly board game with his family.
