Faculty Associate & Technical Director
Bob was one of the founding members of the PERCS program, and has been active in scenario development, technical advice, actor training, teaching and facilitation. His many years of practice in critical care have provided generous opportunities to observe and lead difficult conversations with patients, families, and staff.
“I celebrate the opportunity to develop the abilities of staff through our PERCS/IPEP training programs, and I look forward to continually learning more about how we can develop and nurture trusting relationships with patients, families, and colleagues.”
