CV
Dr. Janet R. Katz, PhD, RN, FAAN focuses on health equity and education opportunities for disadvantaged students and communities. In 2019-2020 she developed and piloted the Client Perceptions of Provider Cultural Competency (CPOPCC) with Dula Paquiao (emeritus Rutgers), Peija Zha (Rutgers), Kay Daub (UHawaii), and Vicky Sattler (WSU). CPOPCC is a novel tool based on transcultural nursing research and theory to measure the cultural competence of providers from the perspective of the patients. Pilot studies have been conducted in Philippine and Native Hawaiian communities. Other recent work includes collaborating with staff, students, faculty, and community members to create a holistic review process for the College on Nursing.
