    Collapse Overview
    Kathleen Turner is a clinical nurse in the Medical-Surgical Intensive Care Unit at UCSF Medical Center. Initially hoping to be a hospice nurse, Kathleen started in the ICU as a new grad and has been there on the night shift for 18 years. She is now actively involved in quality improvement, research, and education at the intersection of palliative and critical care.

    Kathleen has been involved in several multi-center initiatives related to aligning care with patient goals. She teaches at UCSF and elsewhere on withdrawal of life sustaining therapies, communication strategies, and sustainable nursing practice. Her publications focus on ethical reappraisal of challenging clinical situations.

    Kathleen is also trained as a Buddhist chaplain. This provides a nontraditional window through which to examine issues of distress, resilience, the vows we make as clinicians, and our duties to each other. Her area of concentration as a chaplain is spiritual care for clinicians with moral injury.
