Research Description

Three related areas of study currently comprise her research: exploring innovative

uses of emerging technology in the application of screening, educating

and treating mental disorders, improving mental health outcomes and developing

the subsequent policy and procedural implications for action. She supervises

doctoral students in dissertations related to health care technology. She also

supervises masters and doctoral students in creating technology projects for a

variety of health related situations including childhood obesity and children

and mental health. For four years, Dr. Farrell has implemented a Teaching Technology

Support Program (TTSP) for faculty at the School of Nursing while serving on University

and Health System committees related to technology.

In her practice, Dr. Farrell has focused her practice on the care of young adults

and families experiencing crisis and transitions as well as policy for persons

with serious mental illness. Her participation in the International Society of

Psychiatric Nursing (ISPN) on the governing board and local boards has integrated

her interests in education and technology for improving mental health outcomes.
