Professional Summary

Dr. Elaine Miller is a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing as well a Fellow in the American Heart Association. She is certified in rehabilitation nursing and gerontological nursing. She has 2 active research projects:  the effect of virtual reality simulation on worker evacuation of neonates (funding AHRQ) and self-management of stroke caregiver needs through skill building.  In addition, she recently completed several other studies:(1) respite needs of employed caregivers; (2) interventions to reduce modifable stroke risk factors; (3) development of a multidisciplinary adapted cardiac rehabilitation program for stroke survivors;(4) multidisciplinary adapted cardiac rehabilitation after stroke; and (5) co-investigator in a RWJ study to reduce facility acquired pressure ulcers.  For almost 20 years, she also conducted multiple studies focusing on informal and formal caregiving relationships of severely physically impaired adults and their primary caregiver. As a result of this prior program of research, she documented salient factors such as quality of life, functional ability of patient and family caregiver,  reducing modifable stroke risk factors and essential resources needed to maintain long-term caregiving relationships. Along with her research efforts, Dr. Miller  was editor of Rehabilitation Nursing, the refereed scholarly official journal of the Association of Rehabiltiation Nursing, for 13 years until  December 31, 2016 and began as editor of Pain Management Nursing on October 1, 2016.

Keywords

Nursing, evidence-based practice, writing for publication, simulation, virtual reality simulation, translation of research into practice, research methods (quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods), caregiving relationships, quality of life for those with stroke and other health care issues, caregiving dyads, educational interventions to reduce modifiable stroke risk factors

Research and Practice Interests

Dr, Elaine Miller has 3 active research projects:  the effect of virtual reality simulation on worker evacuation of neonates, multidisciplinary adapted cardiac rehabilitation after stroke; and targeting interventions to reduce modifiable stroke risk factors in primarily African Americans. In addition, she recently completed a RWJ study as a co-investigator to reduce facility acquired pressure ulcers.  For almost 15 years, she also conducted multiple studies focusing on informal and formal caregiving relationships of severely physically impaired adults and their primary caregiver. As a result of this prior program of research, she documented salient factors such as quality of life, functional ability of patient and family caregiver, and resources usage affecting the success/failure of long-term caregiving relationships.
