Dr. Rozani Violetta is a faculty member at the Department of Nursing in the School of Health Professions. She is a Registered Nurse and holds a Master’s Degree in Nursing from TAU. Her graduate research study was one of the first in Israel to examine exposure to viral occupational hazards among nurses in the course of their work. She earned a PhD in Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine at TAU, examining risk and protective factors associated with Parkinson's disease. These findings were reported to the Israeli Center for Disease Control (ICDC), allowing the ICDC, for the first time, to make a comprehensive report regarding neurodegenerative morbidity in Israel. She then continued her postdoctoral training at the Faculty of Health Science at Ben- Gurion University of the Negev, exploring the indicators of healthy aging focusing on self-rated health measurement, well-being of the older adults, their health behaviors, and their health outcomes.
Dr. Violleta Rozani
Dr. Rozani’s research focuses on bio-physiological and psychosocial factors, as well as on case/disease management associated with both aging and chronic illness
She conducts big-data studies based on national and international medical datasets as well as studies in the clinical field focusing on the well-being of older patients, their families, and medical staff. In her research on bio-physiological factors, Rozani focuses on the association between medications for type two diabetes mellitus treatment and Parkinson's disease, trying to better understand the mechanism of these medications for the prevention or modification of Parkinson’s disease. As a researcher in the field of case/disease management, Dr. Rozani examines the quality and safety of care provided by nurses in various wards during the hospitalization, as well as the burden of chronic illness experienced by patients, their families, and health care providers
