An expert in adult trauma nursing, Stephen R. Talbert is the director of the Nursing PhD program and a clinical assistant professor at the UCF College of Nursing. Talbert leverages his extensive clinical experience in critical care, trauma and emergency care, including nearly a decade as a flight nurse, in his research. His research focuses on improving clinical decision-making in time-critical situations, such as trauma, heart attack and stroke, using healthcare simulation, technology and artificial intelligence, to ultimately improve patient outcomes.
