Acute care/health services research:
- Nurse surveillance (including Rapid Response Teams and Early Warning Scores)
- ICU survivorship
Dr. Danesh has extensive experience in research operations, administration and research education, including the execution of multi-center clinical trials (phase I-IV investigational drug/device studies and investigator-initiated projects) in hospital and ambulatory care settings.
I have been mentoring students since 2009 (pre-professional high school; undergraduate; graduate). Selection for research assistant volunteers is an in-person collaborative conversation to assess mutual fit, interests and commitments. All initial commitments are a minimum of one semester (short or long semester), and usually involve weekly or bi-weekly meetings (in-person or via web conference) to work toward a pre-determined endpoint/goal. Students that I have mentored in research and clinical trials have gone on to pursue professional careers in medicine (3), dentistry (2), health services administration (1), pharmacy (1), physical therapy (1), biostatistics (1), and nursing (1). I rarely mentor more than 2 research assistant volunteers at a time so that there is ample opportunity to guide and support research effort.
