Sharon Sables-Baus is an associate professor with appointments at both the College of Nursing and the School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics. Through the College of Nursing, Sables-Baus teaches both undergraduate and graduate-level (including inter-professional) classes. Her work aims to promote the best research evidence and integrate/transform it into practice, targeting in particular neurodevelopmental health outcomes of hospitalized neonates and infants. Sables-Baus’ research has explored ways to decrease neurodevelopmental morbidity and to optimize evidence-based caregiving practices that impact neurodevelopmental outcomes. Emblematic of this program of research, Sables-Baus was a part of team that conducted a longitudinal study of neonates born with congenital heart defects requiring three-stage surgical repair; the team used the Bayley Scales of Infant Development to assess neurodevelopmental outcomes, including oral feeding. Research on outcomes among this population has been shared at many conferences (both domestic and international) and published in a cardiac journal. Furthermore, Sables-Baus chaired a national committee tasked with developing evidence-based, infant-driven, oral-feeding guidelines for hospitalized neonates. She currently is developing strategies for integrating oral-feeding competencies into education and practice for all caregivers—physicians, nurses, parents, and therapists—of hospitalized neonates and infants.
