Meet Director, Bryan Sexton, PhD

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, using RCTs to demonstrate that we can cause well-being to improve in healthcare workers. 

A ridiculously proud father of 4, he enjoys running, using hand tools on wood, listening to books on Audible, and over-reacting to a friendly game of Wahoo with his family.
