My clinical interests include systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and inflammatory myopathies, specifically dermatomyositis, polymyositis, and the anti-synthetase syndrome.  Additionally, I maintain a general rheumatology continuity clinic for individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, and other forms of inflammatory arthritis and autoimmune diseases.  In 2007, I co-founded the Duke Lupus Clinic with Dr. Megan Clowse.  We have continued this clinic with the aim to improve the health and quality of life for individuals living with lupus. 

My primary research interests are in education and in SLE.  My particular interest within education is learner assessment.  I am funded by a Clinician Scholar Educator Award through the Rheumatology Research Foundation of the American College of Rheumatology.  My CSE project involves validation and testing of a rheumatology objective structured clinical examination (ROSCE).   Additionally, with collaborators at UNC Chapel Hill, Wake Forest University and the Medical University of South Carolina I composed competency-based goals and objectives (CBGO) for all learning activities of rheumatology fellowship training programs.  These CBGO have been accepted by the American College of Rheumatology and are posted on the ACR website.  Other projects in process include validation of a tool to assess confidence in performing the musculoskeletal examination and an assessment of attitudes towards teaching among housestaff at Duke. 

Regarding SLE, my research has focused on the Duke Lupus Clinic population through enrollment in the Duke Lupus Registry.  Our studies have evaluated depression and pain among this population.  Our ultimate aim is to initiate interventions designed to improve coping and self-management of lupus symptoms.  A project in process involves assessing the knowledge level of both patients and physicians regarding contraception in SLE and other autoimmune diseases, and designing educational interventions to improve this level of knowledge and ultimately appropriate medical practices.
