Patrick J. Doyle, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of gerontology in the Department of Human Services within the College of Health and Human Services at Bowling Green State University. Dr. Doyle is a gerontologist with a background in applied sociology as well as psychology. His research has focused on understanding the experiences of people in long-term care settings and the multiple influences on the quality of care they receive. Dr. Doyle's research and publications have been strongly nested in social theory (e.g., social ecology model, social network theory, life course approach, social constructionism) to help explain the complexity of caregiving practices in long-term care settings. Dr. Doyle's investigative approaches have included ethnography, in-depth interviews, surveys, and secondary data analysis. His work has commented various organizational, environmental, clinical, social, and cultural factors influence the experiences of people with dementia living in long-term care residences. Dr. Doyle is a translational researcher who's academic, research, and applied/clinical experiences have fostered meaningful, applied contributions to the area of dementia and long-term care research.
