Professor Barbara Riegel is the Edith Clemmer Steinbright Professor of Gerontology at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Nursing and Co-editor of the Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing. Professor Riegel is an established nurse scientist studying adults with cardiovascular disease. Her primary research interest is self-care of older adults with chronic heart failure. This interest in self-care grew out of her early years as a Clinical Nurse Researcher at Sharp HealthCare in San Diego, California, where she led several studies testing methods of transitioning chronically ill patients from hospital to home. Her work in self-care and disease management has been cited widely and used to support programs of care internationally.
