Personal Statement
I am trained as a behavioral scientist (clinical psychologist specifically), but most of the work I do is concerned with improving health systems or public health, and especially the interface between the two. I am particularly interested in patient-centered and team based intervention approaches for complex, sticky problems. For example, developing feasible and efficient ways to assist primary care in dealing with the wide range of health behavior, mental health and other risks faced by their patients or in helping patients with multiple chronic conditions manage their conditions and navigate the complex systems of illness care silos with which they have to contend.
The vast majority of my time is spent in research, but I am also passionate about training and making resources available to both researchers and practitioners who want to learn about areas such as implementation science, pragmatic research, or more generally helping facilitate the translation of research into practice and policy.
As an example, my colleagues and I have developed models and frameworks that point to and address issues that are critical to having real world impact, but are seldom addressed in traditional research studies. These models include the RE-AIM (Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, and Maintenance) framework that has been broadly adopted (www.re-aim.org) and the newer Evidence Integration Triangle.
Research Interests:
Implementation Science and Integration of Research into Practice and Policy: Use of conceptual models to identify key factors, review literature, plan, design, and evaluate interventions, promote rapid learning, and integrate research into practice and policy. See http://cancercontrol.cancer.gov/is/
Self-Management and Self-Management Support, especially for older multi-morbid adults: Particularly the development and evaluation of self-help and brief, low-intensity treatment and interactive and eHealth technology approaches; primary care, worksite and community applications. Policy issues related to inclusion of patient-centered measures and self-management criteria in guidelines and performance criteria.
Research Methodology: Particularly pragmatic research, practical behavioral and patient-centered assessment, evaluation of programs intended for translation, assessment of representativeness and generalization, comparative effectiveness research.& Use of Evidence Integration Triangle and RE-AIM frameworks for planning, analyzing, and reporting results of practical trials. See www.re-aim.org.
Multilevel and Systems Approaches to Prevention and Coping with Chronic Illness and Complex Problems: Especially adherence to medical regimens such as cancer, diabetes and behavioral issues of disease management among the elderly and those with multiple conditions (e.g., quality of life, patient models of illness, distress and depression, barriers to adherence, health literacy and numeracy, patient-centered care).
