Some of her recent and current work includes: 1) a NIDA-funded study designed to assess the effectiveness of models of engaging HIV-infected substance users in medical care, substance use treatment and hepatitis C care; 2) an NICHD-funded implementation study to reduce socioeconomic disparities in health at pediatric visits in multiple 3) a HRSA study to evaluate and disseminate the implementation of adapted evidence-informed interventions for high-risk HIV-infected persons; 4) a HRSA-funded hybrid implementation effectiveness study to use community health workers to improve access, retention and care outcomes for persons living with HIV; 5) an evaluation of the Gloucester ANGEL program, a police-led intervention to place people into substance use treatment rather than incarceration; 6) evaluating the New York State Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment program, the mechanism by which the State will implement Medicaid redesign; 7) evaluating an intervention to improve physician communication about and offering the HPV vaccine using a performance improvement continuing education intervention in six community health centers serving safety net populations; 8) mentoring a study to develop an intervention to optimize PrEP uptake and adherence for treatment and prevention among persons who inject drugs; 9) a study examining the feasibility, acceptability and adherence to protocol of use of PrEP for conception among HIV serodiscordant couples; and 10) leading the implementation science component of a PCORI-funded study to compare two brief interventions within the primary care medical home to assess the most effective strategy to improve outcomes among pregnant and postpartum women with depressive symptoms, assess the optimal time to deploy each strategy and examine the barriers to establishing these interventions. Dr. Drainoni also Co-Directs the PhD and MS programs in Health Services Research in the School of Public Health and teaches a course in Implementation Science.
