“Linking nursing care to patient outcomes: What we have learned since Florence Nightingale”
Dr. Heather Tubbs Cooley is an Associate Professor at The Ohio State University Colleges of Nursing and Medicine and a Principal Investigator in the Center for Perinatal Research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. She received her BS in Nursing from Western Michigan University and PhD from the University of Pennsylvania, and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in quality improvement and implementation science at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in 2013. Dr. Tubbs Cooley’s research focuses on understanding factors that both impede and enhance the quality and reliable delivery of core nursing care in pediatric settings, with a goal of redesigning systems to better support the critical work of front-line clinicians. By combining classical health services research approaches with emerging methods such as intensive longitudinal matching of data from nurses and patients, Dr. Tubbs Cooley and her team are discovering new insights about patterns of nursing care delivery that impact patient outcomes. Her work has been funded by the NIH, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the American Nurses Foundation and featured by the New York Times, Medscape, and National Public Radio.
