Implementation Research Institute Fellowship|
Dr. A. Rani Elwy, PhD is a health psychologist and health services researcher, who examines Veterans’ access to mental health care and communication between patients, families and providers. In addition to her role at BUSPH, she is also an investigator at the Center for Healthcare Organization and Implementation Research (CHOIR), a VA Health Services Research and Development Center of Innovation, and the co-Implementation Research Coordinator with the HIV/Hepatitis QUERI, based at the Bedford VA Medical Center.
Specific projects as principal investigator include examining surgeons’ communication with patients and families about unanticipated surgical events and the impact on this on surgeons’ well-being and patients’ trust in VA; investigating and improving large scale adverse event disclosures in the VA; predicting Veterans’ treatment seeking for a new episode of depression from their illness perceptions; and establishing an evidence-base for complementary and alternative medicine as first-line treatments for Veterans with depression and posttraumatic stress disorder. In 2012-2014, Dr. Elwy was a fellow with the NIMH- and VA QUERI- funded Implementation Research Institute. A new avenue of research resulting from this fellowship involves examining social networks of providers to better understand where and how change may occur in an organization. Dr. Elwy is also teaches a Master of Public Health course called Healthcare Delivery Systems: Issues and Innovations (PM755). She advises many MPH, MS and PhD students in the Health Policy and Management department and the Health Services Research program.
