Diana Burgess

Diana Burgess, PhD is Director of the VA Advanced Fellowship Program in Health Services Research at the Center for Care Delivery and Outcomes Research at the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Healthcare System and Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota. As a social psychologist with additional training in organizational behavior and health services research, Dr. Burgess has over 20 years of experience conducting research in health equity and chronic pain. Her research focuses on increasing the use of evidence-based nonpharmacological pain treatments in VA, particularly for groups that disproportionately suffer from pain and are less likely to have access to those treatment (women, racial/ethnic minority, and rural-dwelling Veterans).. She currently is the Principal Investigator on two multisite pragmatic clinical trials: LAMP (funded by the Department of Defense) which tests two approaches for delivering mindfulness-based interventions for chronic pain to VA patients, with a focus on female Veterans, and RAMP which tests the effectiveness of a multi- complementary and integrative telehealth intervention at improving rural Veterans’ pain management, function, and wellbeing.
