Roberta Rehm, RN, PhD, FAAN
My research program focuses on family management of children's complex chronic conditions. Currently, I am leading two projects: The Transition to Adulthood Plans Study (TAPS) is an ethnographic study involving youth, parents, teachers and primary care providers; in TAPS II we have partnered with Support for Families, a community organization, to pilot-test an intervention developed to meet needs identified in the first study. Other collaborative projects with colleagues, students and mentees include studies related to transition home from the NICU, management of chronic conditions for Latinos, and family and commuity impacts for children and youth with special health care needs.

I am active in several professional organizations and currently serve as Secretary for the International Family Nursing Association, and am a member of the Research Committee for the Society of Pediatric Nurses. I serve on the Editorial Boards for the Journal of Pediatric Nursing and Journal of Family Nursing, and serve as a regular reviewer for numerous nursing, medical and interdisciplinary journals. I am currently advising 2 doctoral students and mentoring several colleagues from nursing and medicine, particularly in the use of qualitative research methods.
