The REACH of Nursing 

Vinciya Pandian, PhD, MSN, FAAN

Vinciya Pandian, PhD, MSN, FAANResearcher/clinician Vinciya Pandian eases the physical and emotional plight of tracheostomy patients with treatments that foster quality of life. Back home in India, and where such care lags behind, her Johns Hopkins innovations become revelations.

“Tracheostomy and mechanically ventilated patients face a difficult path. Yes, we have saved their lives. But for these people, their old life is gone. Anything we can give back—comfort, autonomy, a means to communicate—is priceless.”

 

Fannie Gaston-Johansson, PhD, RN, FAAN

Fannie Gaston-Johansson, PhD, RN, FAANPain is universal. Descriptions of what it feels like to the person you might be examining are not. Fannie Gaston-Johansson helped remove such barriers with her Painometer, a plastic wand with tabs, diagrams, and sliding markers that helps patients wordlessly translate what they’re feeling—and where. Her simple, patient-centered brainstorm went global, one moment from a brilliant career that saw her become the School of Nursing’s first JHU Distinguished Professor, an Elsie M. Lawler Endowed Research Chair, a Living Legend of the American Academy of Nursing, the first nurse ever elected to the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities, and dean and founder of the doctoral program in nursing at Sweden’s Gothenburg University. She has remained a tireless collaborator, locally and globally.

“The best scientists in the world are connected to outstanding collaborative networks and colleagues.”
