Andrew Quanbeck awarded 2 NIH grants to study substance misuse in primary care
Dr. Andrew Quanbeck was recently awarded two 5-year NIH grants totaling nearly $5 million to implement interventions for preventing and treating substance misuse in primary care.
He will be collaborating with HIP on the project, “Promoting the implementation of clinical guidelines for opioid prescribing in primary care using systems consultation.” The project addresses the change needed in the U.S. regarding the opioid crisis and prescribing practices by determining how to implement safer prescribing practices as efficiently and effectively as possible in primary care clinics.
He will also be studying how the smartphone app "A-CHESS," which monitors the activity of people with alcohol use disorders and delivers interventions as needed, can facilitate healthier drinking patterns among primary care patients.
