Dr. Turnbull’s research focuses on interactions between the families and clinicians of critically ill patients. Her lab studies shared decision-making during critical illness.
She is particularly interested in methodological innovations that facilitate rigorous evaluation of patient and family engagement initiatives, and in characterizing the long-term outcomes of ICU survivors.
She is a member of the Outcomes After Critical Illness and Surgery (OACIS) multi-disciplinary research group and a member of the Johns Hopkins Hospital clinical ethics committee.
