The integration of my academic background in biology, environmental health science and nursing and my clinical experience as a critical care and hospice nurse have forged my program of research. My research is focused on the areas of critical care nursing, palliative care, the critical care work environment and evidence-based practice. More specifically, I have and am continuing to conduct studies that have an impact on the practice of critical care and palliative care nursing. These include, but are not limited to, evidence based practice projects related to oral care of the intubated patient and the introduction of palliative care into the ICU; ICU inter-professional shared decision making; moral distress and the ICU nurse practice environment.
