L. Michele Issel, PhD, MN, RN
Current Research Interests
My research interests focus on the delivery of services, managerial aspects of providing care to pregnant women and new mothers, and the use of evidence based approaches to care delivery. In particular, I conducted a national survey of prenatal case management with a focus on managerial influences on program implementation.
I am also Co-Principal Investigator, along with Dr. Kathy Baldwin from the College of Nursing, of two multi-year grants from Health Resources Services Administration, Division of Nursing, focused on development of the educational system for preparing more public health nurses.
There are two courses that I consistently teach. One is a doctoral level course, Foundations of Public Health Inquiry, in which students are mentored in the process of developing their own theory about their area of research. The other course, Program Planning and Evaluation, I teach on-line to MPH students.
My most exciting service is consulting with local state and federal agencies regarding MCH program development and evaluation. I serve as an editor-at-large of Healthcare Management Review and reviewer of manuscripts and research grants. At the national level, I chair the Public Health Sciences Research Interest Group of the Academy Health. With Dr. Arden Handler, I am Co-Executive Director of the Naomi Morris Collaboration for Community Assessment and Evaluation.
