Health Promotion & Development


I completed a study for my DNP evaluating a clinical care pathway for post-operative minimally invasive esophagostomy patients. The study evaluated length of stay, adherence to the clinical pathway and correlated post-operative complications with the Charlson Comorbidity Index. Research interests include esophageal cancer, GERD, and post-surgical outcomes.
