Since 2000, my work has focused on qualitative and quantitative studies of the survivorship experience of persons with genitourinary cancer. Initially, my work focused on prostate cancer but has now broadened to include bladder and kidney cancer. My behavioral medicine research projects have been funded ($1.8 million as Principal Investigator, $8.8 million as Co-Investigator) by the National Institute of Mental Health, National Cancer Institute, American Cancer Society, the Department of Defense Congressionally-Mandated Medical Research Program, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. I also have worked in HIV prevention and survivorship, mental health, and pulmonology.
More recently, my work has focused on evaluation of health professions educational programs for the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Academic Affiliations. Since 2011, I have worked on two large national demonstration projects in primary care education and specialty care education to facilitate interprofessional practice, patient-centered care, and performance improvement in the practice of a range of VA trainees. Beginning in April 2014, my work has moved into program development and management of clinical training programs for associated health trainees within VA.
