Professor and Chair, Family Health Care Nursing, University of California, San Francisco

My program of research focuses on health care for acutely and chronically ill infants and children, in primary, secondary and tertiary care settings, with a particular emphasis on pain assessment and management. My most recent research focuses on innovative strategies to improve family-centered care and enhance the partnership between parents and professionals to ensure children receive optimal health care before, during and after hospitalization.
