Julie H. Carter R.N., M.S., A.N.P.
Julie H. Carter, R.N., M.S., A.N.P., is a Professor of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). She serves as the Associate Director and the Director of Education and Outreach for the Oregon Health & Science/Parkinson Center of Oregon (PCO).
During her career, Ms. Carter has been dedicated to improving the lives of people and their families who have Parkinson’s disease by developing a model of family centered interdisciplinary care for the PCO and by developing many innovative patient and family programs. She previously served as Director of Clinical Research for the PCO and Movement Disorders Program for 11 years.
She has been the primary investigator on numerous multicenter clinical trials, with her investigator-initiated research most notable in the area of family caregiving and Parkinson’s disease. Early in her career, she recognized how important families are in the delivery of care to people living with chronic degenerative disease. She also recognized how stressful chronic illness is for families and how few resources were available to them at the time. This inspired research to look at caregiver strain across stages of disease as well as predictors of caregiver strain longitudinally. Her other clinically relevant research topics are how best to deliver the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease as well as collaborative work with Betsy Goy, Ph.D., and Linda Ganzini, M.D., M.P.H., to examine the caregivers’ perception of palliative care needs of people with Parkinson’s disease at end-of-life.
Ms. Carter received her Bachelors and Masters degrees at OHSU.
