Stating the Obvious: Lessons from Epic Failures

The purpose of this session is to encourage the audience to think differently about how to approach work in the future and avoid the mistakes that are a cautionary tale specific to reproductive health, rights, and justice.

Dr. McLemore's current work reflects her training as a public health nurse, trained in qualitative, quantitative and molecular methods. Nursing is a dynamic and hybrid field that meets patients and their families where they are; including the context and environment where experiences of illness and or wellness occur. As a clinician scientist, she takes an ecological approach, meaning women are not compartmentalized beings easily reduced to individual studies of arbitrary time points associated with their biology. Dr. McLemore's own diverse clinical experiences inform and are closely aligned with her research interest. The unifying thread of her work is to produce evidence to assist nurses to meet women wherever they are, specifically by designing patient-centered studies that enhance the knowledge base of nurses who work in gynecology, sexual and reproductive health across the lifespan.
