Dr. Quanbeck’s research draws upon concepts from systems engineering in developing innovative approaches to the implementation of evidence-based practices in healthcare. His research focuses specifically on the prevention and treatment of substance use disorders in primary care settings. Dr. Quanbeck has been the principal investigator on several grants from the NIDA and is currently conducting research funded by two R01s: one study, funded by the NIAAA investigates the use of mobile health technology among patients in primary care who have substance use disorders. The other study, funded by the NIDA uses systems consultation, an innovative blend of implementation strategies, to promote the use of clinical guidelines for opioid prescribing.
