Using a nursing lens to help transform interventions that will deliver high-quality, high-value care.
The center works to address the most vexing problems faced by patients and vulnerable populations including cancer care, critical care, and chronic conditions. Projects at CIPPH use a nursing lens to help transform health outcomes for individual patients and populations through discovery, intervention development, and implementation studies.
Projects at CIPPH span the continuum from discovery to intervention development to implementation studies. Research in these three areas, when combined, transform outcomes for individual patients and populations.
Investigators work within and outside of health care settings. Health problems don't stop when patients exit their health care institution's door, and neither do our solutions.
To improve the experience of patients with cancer and their caregivers, an emphasis of CIPPH is improving symptom management and outcomes for patients receiving chemotherapy.
Patients with complex needs include those who seek care across multiple settings, or who are in critical care units, and/or those with multiple chronic conditions. CIPPH members work towards the implementation of evidence-based interventions to deliver high-quality, high-value care.
CIPPH addresses health equity through population health studies. Current investigations include novel web-based interventions to improve hearing health among youth residing in rural areas and a novel audit and feedback intervention to reduce hazardous drug exposures among oncology nurses.
