      Collapse Overview
      My research program centers on patient safety and quality in maternity care with a focus on communication breakdowns and analysis of barriers and facilitators to implementation of evidence-based quality interventions. Additional research interests include parent engagement in neonatal patient safety, and quality improvement in obstetric and neonatal care. I am a volunteer leader for the California section of the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nursing, and serve on the Executive Committee of the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative. My clinical interests include women's health, perinatal nursing, patient safety, teamwork, interdisciplinary communication, high risk obstetrics, fetal monitoring, perinatal loss, breastfeeding, and family-centered maternity care. I teach graduate level courses in research methods and philosophy of nursing science at the UCSF School of Nursing.
