She also holds a joint appointment in Anesthesia and Critical Care Medicine at the University’s Perelman School of Medicine and is a per diem nurse scientist at Boston Children’s Hospital. Her research, funded by NHLB (National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute), NINR (National Institute of Nursing Research) and NICHD (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, has specifically focused on nurse-implemented interventions. Over several decades, her studies have illuminated relationship-based care when partnering with parents-of-critically ill children, supported parent presence during invasive procedures and resuscitation, and informed the practice of caring for critically ill pediatric patients with acute respiratory failure. Dr. Curley has also led the development and dissemination of core metrics in the field of pediatrics.
