As a member of the graduate faculty, my areas of teaching include LLU Scholars' Seminar, Nursing Science Seminar and Qualitative Research Methods.
My program of research is grounded in my clinical experience of working with family caregivers of community dwelling elders with dementia. Past investigations have been focused on understanding how use of community service programs affects family caregiver stress outcomes. The goal of my research program is to find community-based interventions that will support family caregivers as they provide long term care to their relatives. A combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods has been used in these studies.
