Bio 

The overarching goal of her research is to improve the quality of care delivered by nursing staff, regardless of setting, and she aims to advance nursing’s ability to improve health care outcomes by increasing the mobility/movement of individuals through nursing’s use of cueing approaches, such as reminder messages and behavioral alerts. More specifically, she aims to understand and improve the processes that facilitate nursing staff implementation of evidence-based mobility/movement best practices that target common, yet seemingly intractable geriatric conditions, such as facility-acquired pressure ulcers.

Research Focus

Geriatric nursing, pressure ulcer/injury prevention, nursing subculture, implementation science
