Acute & Tertiary Care
My research interest involves assessing the impact of chronic disorders on physical function and developing behavioral interventions to improve physical function. Specifically, I am interested in fall risk and fall prevention in chronically ill populations including stroke and cancer. I am currently conducting a longitudinal study exploring the development and progression of chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy and its related functional impairments in women with ovarian cancer funded by the Rehabilitation Nursing Foundation . I am also interested in using novel technologies to measure physical function in naturalistic settings, for which I received an Oncology Nursing Society Career Development Award.
I teach the Clinical Practicum course (NUR 2096 and 2097) in the Clinical Nurse Leader MSN program. I also teach NUR 3013, Ethics in Nursing and Health Care.
I am an active member of the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses, American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, Oncology Nursing Society, and Eastern Nursing Research Society. I serve as a Subject Matter Expert for Cancer Rehabilitation on the NIH Clinical Center's Cancer Rehabilitation Expert Consortium. I am a member of the Editorial Board of the Rehabilitation Nursing Journal.
