Research Interests:

With backgrounds in both psychiatric and primary care, Dr. Gilliss has always been interested in the impact of behavior on the recognition and management of illness. Her scientific interests have evolved to a focus on the family as a complex system and its response to and role in shaping the course of chronic illness. Her completed work addresses the family and chronic illness by examining: 1) the experience of family members in the context of illness; 2) the impact of innovative models of nursing intervention on situations that affect the family and its members; and 3) the development and synthesis of scientific work in this area of nursing science. Overall, her scholarly works are considered pioneering and the body of her work was the basis for her receipt of the 2007 Distinguished Contributions to Family Nursing Research Award.

More recently, she has focused on translational and implementation science and innovative models of health care delivery. She served as Director of the Duke Translational Nursing Institute, a venture with the Duke University Health System Nursing Service, from 2006-2013.

Her earliest funded work tested a telephone outcall intervention that employed advanced practice nurses trained to assist the patient and spouse in managing symptoms and interpersonal conflict and developing healthy lifestyle changes. Results of this randomized controlled trial demonstrated significantly improved recovery rates in the experimental group. She is just completing a project designed to test the impact of novel approaches to discharge planning preparation on the rate of hospital readmission for persons with congestive heart failure.
