Biography

Dr. Tammie Dewan is a clinician investigator and clinical assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Calgary. She obtained her MD at Dalhousie University and went on to complete a pediatric residency at the University of British Columbia. Her clinical practice has focused on the care of children with medical complexity including neurodevelopmental disabilities, high health care needs, technology dependence and chronic diseases. During her early career at British Columbia Children’s Hospital, Dr. Dewan led the development of the BCCH Complex Care Program and a variety of efforts to improve the quality of care for this vulnerable population. This experience evolved into a desire to contribute to the evidence-base and the larger questions surrounding the care of children with medical complexity. Thus, Dr. Dewan completed a Masters of Sciences (Experimental Medicine) at UBC and began to build a research career. In 2019, she joined the faculty in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Calgary and the Section of Pediatric Hospital Medicine at Alberta Children’s Hospital. Dr. Dewan’s research program focuses on improving clinical care for children with medical complexity and their families. In particular, Dr. Dewan is interested in investigating the parent/caregiver experience of care and exploring how to incorporate their perspectives and expertise into care delivery and decision-making. Integration of these caregiver perspectives and patient-oriented outcomes into the management of common comorbidities in this population of children is imperative to promote child well-being in the setting of often untreatable and life-limiting conditions.
