Areas of Research, Teaching, And Clinical Expertise and Scholarship

My research area is quality of care and patient safety for adults, with a focus on fall prevention and patient engagement towards self-care as well as their association with patient-centered outcomes. I have used both quantitative and qualitative research designs to address patient safety issues in clinical settings (e.g., using archived hospital data, big data, interviews, or surveys for analysis).

  • Human resource management and leadership: e.g., the relationship between human resource management and care quality, ethics, occupational hazards, resource allocation, family involvement in inpatient care, higher education administration
  • Quality of care and patient safety: e.g., patient falls, pressure ulcers, patient experiences, infection control, newly emerging infectious diseases, religions and cultures, informatics, health policy, history of Chinese medicine
  • Patient engagement and adults' self-care needs
