“The work we do with The Institute for Healthcare Excellence is foundational to how I practice medicine. Most of us go into healthcare because we want to help others, and because some of us like the science part. But even excelling in science is not necessarily where patients want us to be. You can’t have excellence in healthcare without having engagement and passion from caregivers. When we tap into that passion, set expectations, and hold each other accountable we remove barriers to providing excellent healthcare.”
Carrie Grant, R.N., has worked in healthcare for over 20 years.

Prior to her current position, she served in a variety of roles, including director of education, case manager, financial analyst, staff nurse, and patient care technician.
Carrie’s diverse experience is vital in helping her guide other caregivers in the areas of communication, facilitating simulation, science of high reliability, and performance improvement in healthcare delivery.
She has published on physician-administrator relationships and simulation. She has served on the board of the Utah Organization of Nurse Leaders, and currently partners with academic nursing leaders on improving nurse training programs.
