Lisa Bashore, PhD APRN CPNP-PC CPON®Associate Professor and Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner

Dr. Lisa Bashore earned her doctoral degree in clinical research in 2010 from the University of Texas, Arlington. Her clinical and investigative foci have been in the care and long-term follow-up for childhood, adolescent, and young adult cancer survivors. Before earning her doctoral degree, Dr. Bashore was recruited by the Cook Children’s Health Care System to design the current survivorship program, the Life After Cancer Program, where she continues to serve in a part-time clinical role and is engaged in investigative work.

Her investigative work focused on cancer surveillance and screening, health-related quality of life (HRQOL), health promotion behaviors (e.g., physical activity), and best practices in the transition of care in this population. She has published work focusing on transition readiness in cancer survivors and work in progress on the successful transition of care among young adult cancer survivors. Dr. Bashore’s current collaborative efforts are focused on developing a successful community-based transition of care model using implementation science methodology and another project examining the correlations between sleep fatigue, stress, and physical activity among a young population of brain tumor survivors. Future collaborative projects include developing nature-based physical activities to improve the HRQOL, mental health, and cardiovascular health of young adult cancer survivors. Dr. Bashore is also active in both the local APHON Chapter and national APHON, serving on the EBP/R Committee for several years, and has focused on mentoring APHON members to develop and implement both EPB and Research Projects successfully.
