    Collapse overview
    Priti Jani MD, MPH is a pediatric critical care specialist who takes care of critically ill infants and children in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Pediatric Sedation service.

    Dr. Jani’s scholarly focus lies at the intersection of research in simulation-based medical education and resuscitation quality improvement. She develops and investigates educational curricula and quality improvement initiatives that will result in improved individual, team and system level performance during resuscitation events with translation to improved patient outcomes.

    A dedicated educator, she utilizes her expertise in simulation to direct and develop curricula for residents, nurses and pediatric care teams. Serving as the chair of the CPR committee and cardiac arrest lead on the pediatric resuscitation quality committee, she is highly invested in enhancing the clinical program for resuscitation quality and safety at Comer Children’s Hospital. On a national level, Dr. Jani actively participates with organizations such as the PediRES-Q network, a national collaborative dedicated to producing evidence-based solutions for quality improvement initiatives and outcomes during pediatric cardiopulmonary arrest. Additionally, she serves on the executive committee of the Chicago Simulation Consortium. In this role, she provides leadership for a multidisciplinary group of simulation-based health professions educators across the Chicagoland area in sharing resources, enhancing professional development and facilitating collaborative research.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
