Research Overview

Dr. Sanderson and Dr. Joanne Wolfe have undertaken a comprehensive evaluation of the commonly implemented Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order in children with advanced stages of illness by surveying physicians and nurses from practice settings where advance care planning typically takes place regarding resuscitation status discussions and the DNR order. 

Another area of research interest for Dr. Sanderson is the impact of trainee duty hours on patient safety. Dr. Sanderson is the Boston Children's site co-Principal Investigator of an NIH-funded, multi-center, five-year, randomized control trial investigating the impact of ICU resident schedules on patient safety.
