Current Research Interests:

I am currently the national project director for four research studies for the American Heart Association, Laerdal, Medical Corporation, the National League for Nursing, and American Medical Response Corporation. The studies center on new methods to increase the learning and retention of CPR and ACLS knowledge and skills over time.

I am the co-director of  a year HRSA ITNEP grant, with Dr. Brenda Zierler of the Univ. of Washington. This 5-year grant provides education for nurses in the use of technology including simulation in 5 western states (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho). 

WIth doctoral student help, we are finishing a 2 year study on a modified Lasater clinical judgment tool, based on Tanner's clinical judgment model.
