ExpertisePalliative care, Gerontological nursing, Transitional care
Susan Parker's areas of practice are transitional care, palliative care and gerontological nursing. Within these practice areas she is active in the translation of evidence-based knowledge into practice. Parker's DNP project investigated the satisfaction that patients and family members reported with the care received during palliative care consult visits provided by APRNs. Currently, her practice involves working with a team of APRNs, social workers and pharmacists in providing state of the art transitional care to high risk patients during their first 30 days post acute care discharge.
