Katherine McGilton, PhD, RN, FAAN

Dr. McGilton's research program integrates research, practice and policy in long-term care and rehabilitation care. Her research program focuses on three complementary objectives: 1) understanding and improving interactions between staff and residents in long-term care; 2) the supportive leadership capacity of staff in long-term care; and 3) interdisciplinary care delivery models for older adults with cognitive impairment that enhance the appropriateness and effectiveness of care. The results of this research program have led to innovations in models of care and positive outcomes for older adults and staff in long-term care and rehabilitation environments that have been translated to protocols that guide the provision of care in these settings.
