Biography

Gerri Lamb (PhD, RN, FAAN) is an associate professor in the College of Nursing and Health Innovation. Her research interests include nursing care delivery systems and patient outcomes with a focus on nurse care coordination within and across settings, and interprofessional practice to improve healthcare environments. 

Professor Lamb came to ASU in 2008 from an endowed chair position at Emory University to guide the development of a robust program for interprofessional practice and education. Working with a cross-disciplinary team, she helped create the Center for Advancing Interprofessional Practice, Education and Research (CAIPER). The center resulted from six years of competitive grants from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundations and an innovative collaboration with the Herberger Institute at ASU. Center members work with faculty and students across multiple professions to assist them to build teamwork and collaboration knowledge and expertise to provide person-centered, high-quality healthcare. 

Widely recognized as a leading expert on care coordination practice and measurement, Professor Lamb has influenced the development of community-based care coordination and national frameworks for measuring the process and outcomes of care coordination.
