Amy A . Abbott, PhD, RN

Associate Professor

Nursing

I was born and raised in Omaha, NE and, I proudly come from a long line of Creighton graduates (BSN; 1992). I began teaching at Creighton University in 1996 while I continued work as an adult ICU RN at the hospital formerly known as St. Joseph Hospital. Since teaching, I earned both my Masters (MS from CU; 1998) and Doctorate (PhD from UNMC; 2008) degrees. My research trajectory was launched through work with the Creighton Center for Health Services Research and Patient Safety (CHRP).  Research areas focused on patient safety as it pertained to interprofessional education of students (pharmacy and nursing); electronic health record (EHR) with e-prescribing use in rural communities; and electronic personal health records (PHR, selection of  "best" PHR for use in our study) for use in persons with Type II diabetes using a variety of research methodologies including mixed methods. Additional and most current work is focused on teleheath strategies to improve outcomes of children and families with type 1 diabetes in rural communities. Teleheath strategies emerged from the PCORI engagement award as means of addressing needs of persons and caregivers of children with Type I diabetes in rural communities. Different programs are currently being piloted along with external funding beign sought to continue this work.
