Julie My Van Nguyen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at McMaster University and an attending physician in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre. Upon completing a Masters of Science in Healthcare Improvement and Patient Safety, Julie has led several multidisciplinary perioperative improvement projects, including initiatives to decrease surgical site infections and thromboembolic events after Gynecologic Oncology surgery as well as an opioid stewardship strategy. The focus of her clinical research uses local and North American perioperative data (NSQIP), and provincial-level data (ICES) to define the impact of frailty on postoperative outcomes and completion of chemotherapy in Gynecologic Oncology patients. The overarching goal of her work is to establish evidence to support the implementation of optimization and prehabilitation strategies for frail patients with gynecologic malignancies starting chemotherapy or planned for surgery.
