Nancy Hodgson is committed to exploring how to incorporate evidence-based findings into geriatric nursing practice in meaningful ways. Her program of research emphasizes the examination of factors associated with quality of life in chronically ill older adults and the enhancement of science-based nursing practice with older adults at the end of life. Over the years, Dr. Hodgson has developed a program of research focused on palliative care in older adults with complex healthcare needs. Her studies include an NIH-funded career development award investigating the efficacy of palliative, sensory-based interventions designed to ease neuroendocrine distress; and an American Cancer Society-funded study comparing the effectiveness of complementary therapy interventions in nursing home residents with cancer. Dr. Hodgson seeks to be at the forefront of developing the next generation of nonpharmacologic interventions to ease the suffering of her oldest and frailest patients. As part of a broader initiative, she developed a nursing home-based palliative care program in southeastern Pennsylvania, a nationally recognized model for end-of-life care.
