    Collapse overview

    Dr. Pagano-Therrien is a proud alumna of the PhD program at the Graduate School of Nursing.  Her doctoral dissertation, a qualitative study exploring research fatigue among youth and parents of youth with chronic health conditions, revealed a number of protective factors that seem to guard against research fatigue. She is interested in the ethical challenges of the dual clinician-researcher role, informed consent and assent for research, and cultural competence in both providers and researchers. Dr. Pagano-Therrien's research interests are inspired by her ongoing clinical practice as a pediatric nurse pracitioner and research nurse working with HIV-infected and HIV-at-risk children and adolescents.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
