Speakers

Speakers

Mary E. Cramer, PhD, APHN-BC, FAAN is a professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing. Dr. Cramer's focused area of scholarship has been outcome evaluation of community-based programs/services and nursing workforce.  Her evaluative research was acknowledged at a national level when she was invited to serve on an expert panel to develop the research agenda for public health nursing (AHRQ, 2010). She was co-principal investigator for the Midwest Geriatric Nurses Quality Improvement project focused on certification and leadership development for RNs employed in rural Midwestern LTC facilities. The project's success resulted in the American Health Care Association (AHCA)-the nation's largest association of long term and post-acute providers with 11,000 members-adopting it as a central component of their national initiative to improve quality nursing care. Dr. Cramer's work in evaluating the impact of programs/services on population health has been influential to policy formulation at national and state levels. Her research for Tobacco Free Nebraska was instrumental in smoke-free policy changes in Nebraska and has led to invited policy consultations with US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and state/city health departments.
