Dr. Nadia Charania completed doctoral studies in 2013, with a concentration in bio-behavioral health. Her dissertation was titled, “Strategies Pakistani Women Use to Self-manage Recurrent Depression.” She is working on publishing this pioneering qualitative research for clinicians to understand Pakistani women’s perspective on their recurrent major depression and provide them culturally sensitive care. Dr. Charania’s long term research goal is to develop knowledge and understanding of a variety of self-management strategies to manage recurrent major depression and test them across a variety of cultures. In addition, her goal is to develop comprehensive groups of strategies that could be identified, offered, and applied in both in-patient and community clinical practices. Dr. Charania’s scholarly endeavors in psychiatric-mental health nursing particularly in major depression in women and self-management strategies emerged from her clinical practice of working with Pakistani women.
