Dr. Reschke uses engaging, interactive, and meaningful pedagogical strategies to facilitate learning and engage students in the classroom to improve student understanding, retention, and application of pathophysiology concepts. She uses strategies that are tailored to the learning styles of each individual student, such as lectures, group discussions, and case-based learning. These strategies help to ensure that students are engaged and motivated to learn and that they are able to apply their knowledge to future clinical practice. By specializing in adult gerontology, Dr. Reschke is able to focus on diagnosing and treating chronic diseases that are prevalent in older adults and the development of long-term relationships with patients and patients’ families. Dr. Reschke's research has focused on translating current best evidence with informatics knowledge to improve follow-up appointment completion rates and identify barriers to reduce hospital readmission rates by using computerized clinical information systems.
