Traumatic injuries are the third leading cause of death nationally and the first in Americans age 44 and younger, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Level I trauma rooms are intended to stabilize and save the lives of patients with the most severe traumatic injuries. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has awarded a $2.47 million grant to Sara Bayramzadeh, a Kent State University researcher, to help create trauma rooms that support staff in saving patients’ lives.

  • During her years as an ICU nurse, Amy Petrinec, Ph.D., RN, Assistant Professor at the College of Nursing, noticed that chronically, critically ill patients, as well as their family
    members, commonly experience negative psychological symptoms. Her bedside experiences lead her to study this phenomenon as a doctoral student, and later to broaden her research as a post-doctoral fellow.

  • Drawing from her expertise in the areas of hospice nursing, end-of-life care, and parentally bereaved adolescents, Dr. Denice Sheehan’s research focuses on provision of care for hospice patients and their families, including coping skills of adolescents experiencing the life-limiting illness of a parent.

  • Following a traumatic event, many people find their belief system upended and experience lingering psychological distress. However, this period can also be a time where new possibilities, improved relationships, and renewed appreciation for life leads to positive change, a process referred to as posttraumatic growth.
