Overview

  • My research has been focused on nursing workforce, nursing work environments, and their relationship to patient safety and quality of care. I have been involved in various research projects on nursing workforce and patient safety using large-scale databases, such as the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI), the University HealthSystem Consortium, and the American Hospital Association Annual Survey of Hospitals. I have extensive experience in nursing health services research, advanced statistical methods, quantitative research methods, quality measure development, reliability and validity testing, and quality improvement projects.
