Jason M. Etchegaray, PhD, is an Associate Professor at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston and a member of the UT Houston-Memorial Hermann Center for Healthcare Quality and Safety. His main research focus is on understanding the role that organizational factors, particularly organizational culture and context, have in providing safe and quality care to patients. He is the Principal Investigator of two R awards from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality - one focused on developing a survey for NICU parents concerning their perceptions of safety culture and the other focused on hosting a one-day conference titled “Safety culture research: Ways to improve existing methods” - and is also a Co–Investigator on projects funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
