Description of Research Focus
My primary area of interest is psychosocial wellbeing in older persons with dementia living in long term care systems. My doctoral program focuses on the pathophysiologic and psychosocial components of dementia and processes of system and organizational change, with a particular emphasis on system-related barriers to practice change in the long term care environment. Recent research efforts have worked to identify decision-making processes for assessing and treating pain in institutionalized older adults with dementia as well as barriers to effective assessment and treatment.
