Donald “Chip” Bailey Jr., PhD, RN, FAAN is an Associate Professor in the Duke University School of Nursing, Senior Fellow in the Duke Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development, and Claire M. Fagin Fellow. His research program has focused on self-management in patients with serious life-limiting illnesses such as prostate cancer, chronic hepatitis C, or end stage liver disease. Currently he is testing the efficacy of an Uncertainty Management Intervention delivered via telephone to patients and caregivers as they wait for a liver transplant. This NINR-funded, 5-year randomized controlled trial will enroll 240 patients and caregivers. His recently funded 2 year NINR study will examine self-management during gene guided therapy (IL28B) for patients with chronic hepatitis C that undergo treatment with two newly approved protease inhibitors.


In 2008, Dr. Bailey participated in the Duke Faculty Fellows Seminar Program, a year-long faculty-in-residence program, sponsored by the Duke Social Science Research Institute. Dr. Bailey’s research project sought to understand the treatment decision making processes of men newly diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer. He continues that work in a series of randomized experiments administered via an online questionnaire to examine the way in which a variety of labels make monitoring (rather than invasive treatments) more appealing to men at risk for prostate cancer.


He also served as a Core Director for the Center of Excellence in Geriatric Education at Duke University School of Nursing and as a faculty representative to the National Task Force on the revision of The Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice – AACN (2008) and on the expert panel to revise the document, Older Adults: Recommended Baccalaureate Competencies and Curricular Guidelines for Geriatric Nursing Care - AACN/John A. Hartford Foundation (2010). In 2009 Dr. Bailey received the Distinguished Nursing Achievement Award from Emory University, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. He is completing a two year term as the Coordinator for the Advanced Nursing Research Special Interest Group for the Oncology Nursing Society. He was inducted as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing in 2012.

Research Interests

Dr. Bailey’s research interests include aging and chronic illness, men’s health, and psycho-oncology. He is particularly interested in the development and evaluation of psychoeducational nursing interventions to improve quality of life in patients with serious chronic illness by increasing their capability to self-manage uncertainty, distress, and symptoms associated with their disease.

His earlier research focused on patients with chronic illness who elected active surveillance (“watchful waiting”) protocols to manage their disease. Under an active surveillance protocol, patients who have little to gain from standard medical or surgical treatment choose to be monitored at regular intervals for disease progression without undergoing these therapies, retaining the option to move to more aggressive treatments if monitoring reveals significant progression of illness. Such patients may experience high levels of uncertainty. Dr. Bailey has developed and tested psychoeducational interventions that use cognitive reframing techniques to reduce uncertainty and improve quality of life in patients being treated for localized prostate cancer and chronic hepatitis C under AS protocols.

Dr. Bailey is now engaged in a 5-year intervention study testing the efficacy of a tailored uncertainty management intervention for improving the disease management and medical decision-making capabilities in a population experiencing extreme illness-related uncertainty: patients with end stage liver disease (ESLD) awaiting liver transplant. An Uncertainty Management Intervention is being tailored specifically for this these patients and their caregivers. The efficacy of this intervention, which will be delivered via telephone by a nurse to the patient awaiting a liver transplant and his or her caregiver, will be tested in a randomized controlled trial involving 120 patient/caregiver dyads. The overall goal of this project is to improve symptoms and quality of life for these understudied and vulnerable patients and their caregivers by giving them the resources and tools to self-manage their complex concerns.

    Role: PI
    Project Goals: This 2 year exploratory mixed-methods longitudinal case study (n=18) will describe patients’ and providers’ explanations of how and why they engage in technical work (T-WORK) and adaptive work (A-WORK), and adaptive leadership (A-LEAD) and how these strategies promote or pose barriers to patients’ SM in the context of the new genetic marker and treatments. Specific aims are to: 1) Examine how T-WORK, A-WORK and A-LEAD influence patients’ perceptions of their likelihood of cure and how this work relates to SM during 24 weeks of treatment for CHC; 2) Describe providers’ use of T-WORK and A-LEAD approaches during clinical encounters and 3) Describe the trajectories of illness perceptions, symptoms, viral load, and SM in relation to patient and provider reports of T-WORK, A-WORK and A-LEAD from the index clinical encounter to the follow-up treatment response encounter (approximately 24 weeks).
