Overview

Dr. Hudgins has several research interests, but primarily related to using large databases to explore variation in care, particularly within emergency care. He has examined the integration of evidence into clinical practice, specifically around emergency care in both pediatric and adult populations. Dr. Hudgins has also evaluated conflicts of interest in research publications and their impact on review recommendations. He is currently evaluating differences in the drug approval process between adult and pediatric drugs.
