Dr. Fortney's research focuses on aspects of palliative and end of life care for infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). She is interested in characterizing the symptom and medical burden of these infants, and identifying associations between parents’ perceptions of their infant’s symptom experience and their clinical decision-making for their infant, as well as their long-term coping and distress.
