Aimee Sarti

Dr. Sarti is an intensivist at The Ottawa Hospital.

Dr. Sarti is an intensivist at The Ottawa Hospital (TOH). She has completed a Department of Innovation in Medical Education (DIME) fellowship and Masters in Health Professionals Education at the University of Dundee, Scotland. Dr. Sarti’s program of research is focused on the delivery and evaluation of system level educational interventions to improve the care of critically ill patients.

She has led a province-wide needs assessment of critical care education needs of community healthcare providers and a comprehensive needs assessment (NA) for REACHout. In this study, a comprehensive NA explored gaps in community critical care. Dr. Sarti continues to investigate the practice of performing NAs, including the impact and efficiency of various mixed-method processes. In addition, Dr. Sarti led a rapid NA of critical care preparedness in caring for patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola at TOH.  The REACHout investigators conducted a feasibility study where a multimodal intervention and evaluation strategy was deployed. In 2015, Dr. Sarti along with a team of investigators, were awarded a grant from Trillium Gift of Life Network to perform a provincial NA.  Following this study, Dr. Sarti and Dr. Cardinal are leading the development of a national organ donation education program for critical care fellows, funded by Canadian Blood Services. To inform this program, Dr. Sarti is leading a mixed-methods, national investigation of substitute decision makers’ perceptions and experiences surrounding organ donation in Canadian ICUs.

Dr Sarti’s research interests also include examining factors of organizational success in critical care.  Dr. Sarti developed a conceptual framework and performed an exploratory investigation of volunteer physician engagement and has investigated evaluation capacity building (ECB) to inform organizational learning with the ACES program, a national training program on the acute resuscitation of critically ill patients.
