“Cure sometimes, treat often, comfort always.” — Hippocrates
Shawna Mudd has dedicated her career to the health of children in both acute and primary care settings. She began her career at Hopkins as a pediatric intensive care nurse and has been a pediatric nurse practitioner for more than 10 years in the Pediatric Emergency Department at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Mudd’s unique expertise stems from years as a child abuse consultant and provider of specialized primary care to children of mothers in substance abuse treatment programs, which translates into valuable insight for her undergraduate and graduate courses. Her most recent work focuses on improving pain management and pain-related outcomes for children experiencing both acute and chronic pain. She is also studying interventions to improve outpatient outcomes for children presenting to the emergency department with acute asthma exacerbations.
