Dr. Mobily's interest in pain assessment and management, especially nonpharmacologic management of pain, has led to several research projects. Past projects include an evaluation of pain intensity tools for use with elders, a comparative study of the experience of chronic back pain in elders and non-elders, examination of the prevalence and impact of pain in rural elders, and development and validation of NIC pain interventions. As Principal Investigator, she has recently completed an NINR-funded project on "Elder Pain in LTC: Prevalence, Impact, and Management" and serves as Co-Investigator on two additional funded projects, "Elder Pain: Assessment of Intensity" and "Nonpharmacologic Analgesia for Invasive Procedures." She is Co-Investigator for the Iowa Geriatric Education Center Grant and is the Education Director for the Hartford Center at the University of Iowa College of Nursing.
