Area(s) of Scholarly Interest (practice, education, and research)
Dr. Rohan’s program of scholarship focuses on improving processes in neonatal 
and pediatric care, with special interest in assessment and management 
practices. She has a particular interest in the the prevention of 
healthcare-associated infections and other resistant infections.  Recent work 
focuses on the use of blue light as a bacteriocidal agent.  Dr. Rohan has 
published/presented on numerous clinically-relevant topics, including the 
topics of substance-exposed neonates, pain-associated stressor exposure, 
academic integrity, and central venous catheter care.  She is currently working 
with multidisciplinary research teams to develop innovative strategies to 
mitigate health disparities related to childhood infections, as well as to 
expand the use of novel technologies to reduce the incidence of healthcare 
associated infections and infections in pediatric populations.
