Impact of Poor Sleep on Healthy and Chronic Illness Populations
I have made sustained, significant contributions in symptom science through research and service focused on improving sleep. My research has addressed critical research-to-practice gaps in theory, measurement, and methods to improve sleep. My international impact is evident in my publications and their citations that show these publications serve as a foundation for research and practice in 38 countries in most major continents. My national and statewide impact are evident in consultation requests for symptom assessments in oncology clinical trials, evidence based practice initiatives, and creation of an evidence based program to improve sleep in patients and healthcare system employees.
