Leanne Boehm   PhD, RN, ACNS-BC

Assistant Professor


Dr. Boehm focuses her research on strategies to improve outcomes for the critically ill. Specifically, she has worked extensively on reducing the prevalence of ICU delirium through implementation of an interprofessional evidence-based bundle (i.e., ABCDEF bundle). Her primary research interests include exploration of interventions to improve interprofessional protocol implementation, adherence, and fidelity in the acute care setting; implementation of ICU peer support and diary programs with exploration of the associated patient, staff, and organizational outcomes; and exploration of interventions to reduce the burden of Post-Intensive Care Syndrome. She is a former Vanderbilt Postdoctoral Fellow and Veterans Affairs Quality Scholar. Dr. Boehm is affiliated with Vanderbilt's Center for Critical Illness, Brain Dysfunction and Survivorship, formerly known as the ICU Delirium and Cognitive Impairment Study Group, and the Center for Clinical Quality and Implementation Research. She is also president of the Vanderbilt School of Nursing Iota Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.
