As part of the senior year curriculum, Dr. Naylor teaches NURS 385 "Senior Inquiry" and shares her vast research experience with seniors who will work closely with an advisor from the standing faculty. The students select a topic and are instructed on the art of doing a thorough literature search, building a table of evidence, and performing a synthesis of the state of the science on that topic. Many of the papers have been accepted for publication in major scholarly journals, including the Journal of the American Medical Society, an unusual event in nursing.
Since 1989, Dr. Naylor has led an interdisciplinary program of research designed to improve outcomes and reduce costs of care for vulnerable community-based elders. To date, Dr. Naylor and her research team have completed three National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR)-funded randomized clinical trials focusing on discharge planning and home follow-up of high-risk elders by advanced practice nurses.
