Biography:

Dr. Poon is a cardiologist and Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto. After completing her fellowship training in Cardiology, Advanced Heart Failure/Transplant and Adult Echocardiography at the University of Toronto, she obtained a Master of Science in Quality Improvement and Patient safety from the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation. She is now the Medical Co-Director of the Heart Function and Rapid Cardiology Assessment clinic at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and is a member of the CorHealth Cardiac Leadership Council, as well as the current Co-Chair of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society Heart Failure Quality Indicators working group.

Her research is focused on improving, standardizing, and evaluating the quality of care that heart failure patients receive, by developing innovative models of care which: 1) incorporate HF quality based procedures and quality indicators, 2) promote patient engagement and partnerships with other health care providers across the province and nation. She is a recipient of the 2018 Ontario AHSC AFP Innovation Fund for her research in this area.
