Diane Hill Presents Findings Related to Grandparents Caring for Children
Diane Hill, senior lecturer in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Kent State Salem, recently shared her research findings at the Midwest Nursing Research Society Symposium in Schaumburg, Ill. (near Chicago).
Hill is an advanced practice nurse/clinical nurse specialist whose area of expertise is pediatrics and she has been teaching on the Salem Campus for 15 years. Her research title was “Challenges for custodial grandparents caring for grandchildren with chronic illness: an integrated literature review.”
This literature review was the initial steps toward Hill’s doctorate dissertation.
“As a pediatric nurse, I see an increasing number of children cared for exclusively by grandparents for various reasons,” Hill explained. “My future study will examine the custodial grandparents’ challenges as they care for grandchildren with asthma.”
