Dr. Chrouser’s main research interest is focused on understanding how surgeon responses to intraoperative stress impact their team’s communication and dynamics. Her long term goal is to design interventions to improve the quality of surgical care provided as well as prevent provider burnout/attrition from chronic stress. She is also working on several projects Patient Safety Enhancement Program (PSEP) to understand how inpatient urinary retention is managed, with the long-term goal of reducing unnecessary catheterization and thus preventing urethral injury.
