Priscilla Gazarian, associate professor in the department of nursing at UMass Boston and an alumni of the UMass Amherst College of Nursing Ph.D. program, will present the fourth talk in the College of Nursing’s 2018 Spring Seminar Series.

Dr. Gazarian's program of research is focused on preventable patient harms, specifically the role of patient engagement and nurse decision making. She is also interested in how the patient experiences dignity and respect during hospitalization, including loss of dignity and respect as a preventable harm.

Her research is conducted at the Brigham and Women's Hospital where she holds an appointment as a Senior Nurse Scientist.
