Research Interest

I am interested in the psychological and psychosocial effects on individuals who experiences traumatic events. My research focuses on developing and testing comprehensive intervention programs for post-traumatic victims of natural disasters that conceptualized to help the survivors achieve full recovery and better cope with the effects of the devastation. My secondary area of research interest is about a long-term nursing care practices for patients with spinal cord injuries. My goal is to develop strategic systems of care delivery in establishing baseline findings and assessment that will detect the improvement or deterioration of the patients' condition and prevention of further complications.
