- Event Details
This presentation titled, Improving Infection Prevention, Control and Management in Nursing Homes: A National Study, is part of the Center for Excellence in Aging Services and Long Term Care lecture series. Dr. Stone conducts research in the area of preventing healthcare-associated infections and has been the principal investigator on many federal and foundation supported grants.
She has served on a number of important policy making committees (e.g., she co-chaired two National Quality Forum Technical Advisory Panels and she served as an expert for the Massachusetts Expert Panel on Healthcare-Associated Infections and California Health Department). Additionally, her work on the cost of healthcare-associated infections have been cited in major publications including important reports written by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (guidelines and a burden of illness study) and the Health and Human Services Healthcare-Associated Infections Action Plan.
These activities have contributed to recent changes in health policy (e.g., federal and state legislation mandating that hospitals report both process and outcome data related to healthcare-associated infections) as well as the type of data the hospitals are collecting. Dr. Stone is passionate about conducting policy relevant research and educating the next generation of nurse and interdisciplinary scientists.
