    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.
