VA Research on the Hill
Erin Krebs, MD, spoke about her landmark VA study comparing opioids to stepped care non-opioid therapy at the 2018 VA Research on the Hill.
Diana Burgess, PhD is heading a 6-year, $5.2 million study, funded by the Department of Defense (DoD), on the effectiveness of mindfulness to treat chronic pain and co-morbid conditions such as PTSD, insomnia, depression, and substance abuse.
The Minneapolis VA Center for Care Delivery and Outcomes Research (CCDOR) is a VA HSR&D 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.
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.
