Summary of research and teaching specializations
My area of interest is nursing informatics, the management of information to support nursing practice and knowledge building. My research is in the area of knowledge representation, literally how nursing knowledge can be represented in computer systems in order for technology to best support nursing in practice and in building knowledge. The representation of nursing knowledge about family and family health history has been a focus of my research, incorporating a person-centered, diverse definition of family into computer representation of family health history.
