Patients with chronic diseases and their families frequently manage their day-to-day health in today’s complex health care delivery system. Margaret Grey, DrPH, RN, FAAN, a pediatric nurse practitioner with an expertise in diabetes, knows how nursing can enhance the way individuals and their families manage such conditions. She will share leadership tips for advancing science and translating science into practice. Grey will also address the resources and hurdles that families face in self-managing chronic conditions, the processes and practice involved, and expectations for the quality of life and health.
The Annie W. Goodrich Professor at the Yale School of Nursing and its former dean, Grey directs the Translational Research Core for the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation. Before joining Yale in 1993, she was director of the primary care graduate program and chair of the Family and Community Health Division at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Prior to that, she was assistant professor of clinical nursing and director of the Graduate Major in Pediatric Ambulatory Care at Columbia University. She was also the founding director of the NIH-funded Center for Self and Family Management.
A reception will follow the presentation.
This event is free of charge to all School of Nursing alumni, faculty, and friends.
Lecture attendees receive 1.5 contact hours for nursing continuing education. These may be used for RN license renewal in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and in other states where they are accepted.
