Maja Djukic is an Assistant Professor at the New York University Rory Meyers College of Nursing where she teaches quality improvement and evidence-based practice. She is dedicated to educating health professionals in healthcare quality and safety competencies essential for high value care. To date she has used innovative educational technologies such as virtual patients and simulation to build interprofessional teamwork competencies for nursing and medical students. She has also led national research efforts to assess nurse quality, safety preparedness and inform educational gaps and solutions in this area.
