Dr. Casida’s program of research focuses on self-management and caregiving in populations living with complex conditions including, but not limited to patients with advanced heart failure requiring implantation of a ventricular assist device, total artificial heart, or cardiac surgery. In the context of self-management, Dr. Casida investigates mechanisms and interventions related to patient’s treatment adherence, self-efficacy, and symptom management (e.g., sleep disturbances). Additionally, he investigates the degree to which the patient’s informal (e.g., family member) and formal (e.g., nurses) caregivers contribute to the patient’s health, morbidity, healthcare utilization, and quality of life outcomes. Notably, Dr. Casida is passionate in explicating and documenting the bedside nurses and advanced practice nurses' contributions to organizational performance at the patient care unit, department, hospital, and healthcare system’s levels.
