Dr. Evans' research focuses on the transfer of clinical skills from the simulation laboratory to the hospital setting. Her primary focus has been on central venous catheter insertion performance by resident physicians. Her AHRQ funded study demonstrated that residents trained to competence in the simulation laboratory perform better in the clinical setting. She is currently investigating skills decay in procedural skills.
