Overview

Dr. Doan's research program comprises projects evaluating pediatric emergency department patterns of use, the quality of the care provided, and the efficiency of service delivery. She aims to answer questions pertaining to the population's need for pediatric emergency care, how well the health-care system is equipped to meet this need, and how we can maintain or improve the quality and value of the care provided to children and families seeking help in emergency settings.

As a member of Pediatric Emergency Research Canada (PERC), Dr. Doan is the BC Children's site investigator for many PERC multi-center studies. She is also the PERC representative.

Research

Advancing Concussion Assessment in Pediatrics
The aim of this study is to more accurately identify mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), commonly known as a concussion, and to predict its long-term outcomes by studying a broad pool of neurological and psychosocial markers used in diagnosing mTBI.

Evaluation of MyHEARTSMAP, a self-reporting youth mental health assessment & management tool
Adapted from the clinical HEARTSMAP tool, MyHEARTSMAP is a youth mental health self-assessment tool designed for use by youth and their families in the emergency department (ED). Upon completion of the self-assessment, the tool generates recommendations for services that youth and families can access depending on their self-assessment scoring. This study aims to evaluate MyHEARTSMAP by assessing the tool's predictive validity, determining the feasibility of its use in the ED, and evaluating the impact of screening on health resource seeking behaviour of participants with identified mental health concerns.

Meeting Pediatric Mental Health Needs in the Emergency Department – HEARTSMAP Expansion
HEARTSMAP is an electronic, clinical assessment tool developed to guide clinical care for pediatric patients presenting to the ED with mental health complaints. This tool is being implemented across BC as the gold standard assessment for emergency pediatric mental health visits . The aim of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of implementing HEARTSMAP in emergency departments and its impact on health service measures such as ED utilization, flow, and outcomes.
