Dr Erin Spicer is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, division of General Internal Medicine at Western University. She undertook her undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo and completed her medical degree at the University of Toronto in 2013, before doing her residency at Western University in General Internal Medicine. In 2018 she was awarded an MSc in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety from the University of Toronto. Presently she also holds an Adjunct Assistant Professors appointment in the Department of Graduate Studies Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, University of Toronto.

Dr Spicer’s previous activities include being involved in the implementation of Patient Orientated Discharge Summaries (PODS) across Medicine at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) with the team receiving the LHSC President’s Award for Innovation in 2018.  This had been a culmination of QI research projects focused on iatrogenic contributors to hospital- acquired frailty including sleep deprivation, immobility, and malnutrition. She is the primary investigator for the AMOSO funded ‘WalkMORE’ research study, which is looking at the effect of training volunteers to mobilize with medicine inpatients to reduce deconditioning and is leading the implementation of GEMINI at LHSC, integrating internal medicine data from different hospitals, enabling ongoing research in this area of patient care. She is currently one of the Directors for the LHSC Urgent Covid-19 Care Clinic (LUC3), a novel initiative started during Wave 1 of the COVID-19 Pandemic. This clinic is designed to virtually care for COVID-19 positive patients in a community setting, including self-monitoring of patients oxygen levels at home; an initiative for which Dr Spicer was one of the recipients to be awarded the 2020 Department of Medicine Award for Excellence for Innovation.

She is a physician representative on the Inter-Professional Practice Advisory Council and acts as a supervisor and advisor to physician trainees and medical student for QI projects.
