Kathie Lasater, EdD, RN, ANEF, FAAN
Kathie Lasater is a professor at Oregon Health & Science University USA on the Portland campus. She was one of the first researchers to focus on simulation, specifically how simulation as a learning strategy can impact the development of clinical judgment. One of the outcomes of her research was the Lasater Clinical Judgment Rubric, a widely known and used assessment tool. Ten years after its publication, the rubric has gone global—it has been translated or is in process of translation in 12 languages. Her clinical judgment research focus has extended to new graduates’ transition into practice.
For more than 10 years, Dr. Lasater has taught population health to undergraduate nursing students. In 2018, she will be a Fulbright scholar in the UK (Edinburgh), helping to lay the groundwork for a deepening emphasis on social determinants of health and the care of vulnerable populations. She will also be exploring student attitudes about poverty and social justice and how nursing leaders envision the role of nursing in improving population outcomes.
