Research Interests

The aim of my program of research is to enhance communication among pediatric patients with life-threatening illnesses, their family members, and health care clinicians, particularly discussions around goals of care, values, and care preferences. I am specifically interested in leveraging the role of the nurse to engage in more collaborative relationships with their physician colleagues to ensure the communication needs of patients and families are met throughout the illness trajectory.
