Therese S. Richmond, PhD, FAAN, CRNP is the Andrea B. Laporte Professor of Nursing and the Associate Dean for Research & Innovation at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. She co-founded the Firearm and Injury Center at Penn which has evolved into the Penn Injury Science Center, and is a Senior Fellow at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Dr. Richmond's research interests in adult and adolescent injury focus on the interplay of physical and psychological consequences of serious injury in order to reduce post-injury disability and maximize recovery. Her work has helped to identify groups of injured patients most likely to experience sub-optimal outcomes and points to screening and interventions to improve these outcomes. In addition, she focuses on improving the health, safety and well-being of vulnerable populations living in low-resource communities. At an international level, Dr. Richmond collaborates with colleagues in Australia to study indicators of successful trauma recovery from patient, family, and provider perspectives.
