She is the Principal Investigator of four NIH grants, 1) The Center for `Ohana (family) and Self-Management of Chronic Illnesses (5P20NR010671) to advance knowledge in the field of `ohana self-management to improve health-related quality of life in ethnically diverse populations. This includes a 2) diversity supplement (R01 NR007883-05S2); 3) the Office of Research Development (ORD) (EARDA-G11HD054969) to enhance faculty opportunities to secure funding, conduct collaborative biomedical and behavioral research, and research training for faculty and students; and 4) Cognitive Behavioral Intervention in Diabetes Self-Management (RO1- NR007883 ) to examine the behavioral and health outcomes in Asian/Pacific Islanders (API) with type 2 diabetes.
Past projects include: 1) Center for Health Disparities Research, (P20 NR008360- Mentor and Research Core Director) partnering with the University of Washington to reduce health disparities affecting API; and 2) An Online PhD Program for Rural/Underserved Communities, (PD-2005-2007, D09HP05305) to expand access to the PhD program for ethnically diverse nurses living in rural underserved areas, increase the number of API graduates who teach in nursing programs in rural/underserved areas, and conduct culturally competent clinical research to improve the health of rural underserved communities by addressing health disparities of API.
In 2005, Dr. Inouye received the Sigma Theta Tau Gamma Psi Chapter-at-Large Research Award and was awarded the 2009 Nurse Researcher of the Year by the Pacific Institute of Nursing.
