Marie T. Nolan
Dr. Marie T. Nolan is internationally known for her work on patient and family decision making in the face of critical illness. Her research focuses on the decision-making process at the end of life for patients, their families and physicians, a key issue in both clinical care and bioethics. Her pioneering end-of-life research has revealed that instead of the autonomous decision making model prevalent in clinical practice and health care policy, most critically ill patients prefer shared decision making with their family and physician. At Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, Dr. Nolan is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and the Johns Hopkins Director for the first nursing doctoral program in China, a collaboration between Peking Union Medical College and the School funded by the China Medical Board of New York. She is also President of the International Nursing Doctoral Education Network. Dr. Nolan holds a joint faculty appointment in the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics and has served on advisory panels of the National Institutes of Health regarding end-of-life care research. Widely published in the nursing and multidisciplinary research literature, Dr. Nolan has edited two books, Measuring Patient Outcomes (2000) and Transplantation Nursing: Acute and Long-term Management (1995).
