Biography

My name is Adam Booth and I have been an intensive care unit nurse in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU) for the past nine years at University of Louisville Hospital (UofL), a Level 1 trauma center. I thoroughly enjoy the patients and families I am fortunate enough to provide care for at UofL. My experiences have taught me a lot about healthcare, caring, and an understated importance on communication and listening in the clinical encounter. However, there is an endless amount of information to learn and improve clinical practice. I am currently a PhD Candidate at the University Louisville, School of Nursing. My research interest is moral distress experienced by SICU nurses and how their perceptions and experience may impact their moral distress, moral residue, stress and coping, and perceptions of quality patient care. Furthermore, I am interested in bioethical issues due to their complexity. Specifically, the ethical dimensions of practice may lead to ethical dilemmas in the SICU. For example, there is rarely one solution to "solve" a problem where the context includes decision-making and communicating among multiple healthcare professionals, patients, and families, particularly when all of these individuals represent a multitude of diverse perspectives, values, and responsibilities. I have been a Visiting Assistant Nursing Professor since August 2018 at Indiana University Southeast, School of Nursing.
