The Office of Nursing Research provides complimentary statistical consultations with leading experts in research design and statistical methods. Our consultants work with the many researchers in the School of Nursing so in order to meet our community’s growing need for consultation, we ask that you request an ONR consultation via our scheduling system below.
General consultation principles to keep in mind:
- Our consultants are experts in the area of research design and statistical methods and they are available through ONR to provide consultations (e.g., not teaching or programming)
- Please prepare all materials (e.g., research questions, drafts of designs, questions about design and methods, synopsis of available data) prior to the consultation
- If you are a student, your PhD chair must attend the statistical consultation; at this time ONR statistical consultations are only available for PhD students. Other students (e.g., DNP) in need of statistical consultation are encouraged to connect with the University of Washington Statistical Consulting Service. This free service provides students with consultants with expertise using R statistical analysis program as well as an array of other analytical programs during the academic year.
ONR Research Methods Consultation Service Request:
Ken Pike, PhD: Dr. Pike has decades of experience advising researchers in the areas of basic statistics from a social science perspective. STATA statistical programming, structural equation models, latent class analysis, latent growth models, panel and pooled time-series designs, and multilevel mixed effects models.
Kristin Beima-Sofie, PhD: Dr. Beima-Sofie is a Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Global Health at the University of Washington. She serves as core faculty for the UW/FHCRC Center for AIDS Research Behavioral Sciences Core, as well as faculty for the Global Center for Integrated Health of Women, Adolescents, and Children (Global WACh) and the Kenya Research and Training Center (KRTC). Dr. Beima-Sofie leads a qualitative mentoring group (QWIP) for students, fellows, faculty and staff, conducts workshops on qualitative methods for CFAR, and teaches the second course in the global health qualitative methods series (GH539: Analyzing Qualitative Data). As her research trajectory has advanced, she has moved along the translational health pathway from being a laboratory scientist to a qualitative methodologist. Originally focused on molecular and genetic influences on health, she now uses personal narratives to provide a deeper understanding of health experiences. Dr. Beima-Sofie’s research interests span a range of topics related to HIV, including HIV prevention and treatment, global and domestic foci, and key populations. A key focus of her research has been holistic care for women, adolescents, and children, applying a translational health continuum lens within 2 primary research domains: 1) behavioral and contextual influences on health outcomes using qualitative methods, and 2) bridging the ‘know-do gap’ through evaluation of intervention implementation using implementation science methods.
