Dr. Oh’s goal of the program of research is to improve the health status and quality of life of adults by reducing the burden of multiple chronic conditions (MCC) through self-management.
Her research is centered around people with metabolic chronic conditions that include cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia to manage their modifiable risk factors and change their health behaviors through self-management using health technology and information. She has been interested in changing behaviors and self-management outcomes thus, she developed an outcome measurement tool, which is the Cardiac Health Behavior Scale for Adults with Cardiovascular Risks or Diseases (CHB-K21), and validated nursing-sensitive self-management outcomes for people with diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, and lipid disorders. Also, she is interested in the effectiveness of nursing care through evaluations of nursing outcomes to improve the quality of nursing interventions using standardized nursing terminologies.

Developing self-management intervention for adults with multiple chronic conditions (MCC).
The purpose of this program is to support people with MCC for learning self-management skills and abilities to manage their modifiable risk factors & conditions and to improve their health outcomes using assistive technologies and health information, such as a socially supportive robot, mobile application, AI, speech recognition, and natural language process.
