Dr. Nguyen is trained in bio-behavioral research in chronically ill adults and older adults, physical activity epidemiology, applied informatics, health services research, and implementation science. While at the University of Washington, she taught and mentored undergraduate and graduate nursing and health sciences students. Her ongoing partnered research with Kaiser Permanente operational and clinical leaders is focused on using observational and experimental methods to improve care processes and outcomes for older adults with multiple chronic conditions across the illness trajectory and care continuum. Specifically, her implementation and evaluation efforts are focused on physical activity promotion, care transitions, palliative care, and long term supportive services.
