Dr. Arianne Baldomero published an article in Lancet Regional Health--Americas on her cohort study that found that patients with COPD who live in rural areas or have a longer drive to time care were more likely to receive guideline-discordant inhaler therapy regimens.
Dr. Fu is funded through VA HSR&D for a 4-year project looking at Veteran Social Support and Smoking Cessation. The primary outcome is use of any evidence-based cessation treatments (EBCT), this outcome is recommended for advancing the science of tobacco treatment among smokers in the motivation or pre-cessation phases.

The Minneapolis VA Center for Care Delivery and Outcomes Research (CCDOR) is a VA HSR Center of Innovation (COIN) operating under the direction of the Office of Research and Development (ORD). Formerly known as the Center for Chronic Disease Outcomes Research, CCDOR has been a productive, interdisciplinary community of professionals since 1998, conducting innovative health services and implementation research intended primarily to improve health outcomes for Veterans with chronic disease.
CCDOR’s mission is to develop and evaluate interventions and implementation strategies that improve health care delivery, Veteran engagement in health care and Veterans’ health and functioning in their communities
CCDOR’s vision is to elevate the quality, consistency, and equity of health care and outcomes for all Veterans through innovative health services and implementation research.
The Center for Care Delivery and Outcomes Research (CCDOR) strives to foster an inclusive and accessible work environment that honors its employees’ diverse identities, perspectives, backgrounds, values, and cultural practices. We believe that a diverse workforce enriches our research teams and the quality of our research to improve health and healthcare delivery for all. CCDOR is deeply committed to just treatment, equitable opportunity, accessibility, and cultivating a community based on respect for everyone.
CCDOR’s strategic plan focuses on two high priority areas in which CCDOR’s expertise and partnerships are exceptionally strong and where CCDOR is positioned to make substantial and meaningful contributions: (1) Trauma Recovery, and (2) Chronic Pain and Opioid Harms Reduction. CCDOR will also advance research in additional areas and ensure a sustainable pipeline of highly qualified health services researchers.
