As a clinician- scientist, Dr. Dulko has dedicated her career to cancer patients and families framed in the transitions they face from diagnosis, through treatment, survivorship, and end of life. Her research has focused on implementation science methodologies to foster evidence-based practice change in healthcare, addressing the barrier and facilitators to clinical application of research evidence and integration of technology in the conduct of clinical trials. She has multiple peer- reviewed publications and presentations that include strategies to measure outcomes in clinical research, gynecologic oncology, symptom management, cancer survivorship and compassion fatigue, healthcare provider burnout.

Dr. Dulko has taught graduate and doctoral-level nursing students both on ground and asynchronously, coordinated curriculum, and served as chair of university and hospital committees. The same commitment that propels her dedication to patients, families and her profession also inspires Dr. Dulko’s teaching, integrating the values and theoretical underpinnings of nursing- cultural awareness, compassion, and appreciation for the dignity of every human being.
