HIV experts at Penn shed light on the science behind the breakthrough and how it may shape research and practices moving forward. Penn Nursing’s Bridgette Brawner offers her perspective.
Around Penn, clinicians and researchers are focused on Ebola, working to ensure this disease—fearsomely lethal—can be vanquished. Penn Nursing’s Connie Ulrich – a nurse and bioethicist – has written of the “moral distress” faced by health care providers who worked in the 2014 Ebola outbreak.
In the decade since the federal government’s electronic health record (EHR) initiatives first became law, nearly all U.S. hospitals have adopted some form of EHR technology. Now, focus is on how a comprehensive EHR can enhance outcomes. Yet, little is known about the sociotechnical factors that can shape the relationship between advanced EHR adoption and quality of care.
Penn Nursing’s Mary Ersek, PhD, RN, FPCN, the Killebrew-Censits Chair in Undergraduate Education and Professor of Palliative Care, will be honored by Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) for her contributions to the nursing profession during the 30th International Nursing Research Congress in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, in July.
