Dr. Lynne Moore is an associate professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the department of social and preventative medicine and scientist in the Population Health and Optimal Health Practices research unit of the CHU de Québec research center. In the first six years of her research career, she has obtained a position as an associate professor, a CIHR new investigator award (ranked 4/393), a FRQS Junior 2 award, 2 research grants (CIHR Foundation, 2 CIHR operating, FRQS operating) and has achieved a h-index of 38 and a i10-index of 75. She was nominated CIHR institutional research career success story and recently received the CHU de Québec young research career award.

Dr. Moore currently holds or shares $10.2 million in research funds. She is leader of the International Initiative for Injury Care Improvement, a network of over 60 researchers from 30 low, middle, and high-income countries. She works in close collaboration with the Québec National Institute of Health Care Excellence, the Trauma Association of Canada and Accreditation Canada. Dr. Moore has established an extremely productive training environment based on networking, collaboration, and mentoring. She has supervised 19 graduate students since 2011 and currently mentors two clinician-scientist (career awards obtained) and a postdoctoral fellow (CIHR award obtained).

Dr. Moore’s research program has led to the development, validation, implementation, and evaluation of a comprehensive quality assessment tool for acute injury care. This research alone has led to 47 publications, 65 presentations, the training of 18 graduate students, and media coverage (Le Soleil and Radio Canada). Her research has shown that improving the structure of injury care increases conformity to evidence-based clinical processes, which in turn improves patient outcomes. Implementation of the tool in the Québec Trauma Care Continuum involved on-site visits, publication on a web platform, investigation of quality problems, and implementation of solutions. This has resulted in an improvement in compliance to clinical processes and a decrease in mortality and length of stay. The success of the Québec trauma care continuum was recently recognized internationally by the International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment. Similar improvements in injury care outcomes are expected across Canada following the recent implementation of her quality indicators by Accreditation Canada. With recent funding from the CIHR (Foundation and operating grants) and the FRQS (Junior 2, operating grant), Dr. Moore is now extending her research program to study the problem of low value clinical practices and overutilization of resources in collaboration with Choosing Wisely Canada.
