Research Statement

A primary objective of Dr. Wallace’s research is to design high quality chronic health care service interventions aimed at narrowing gaps in clinical outcomes while simultaneously understanding how these interventions can be feasibly administered during routine, community-based service delivery where they can benefit a range of patient populations. She has participated in the development, conduct, and publication of research studies focusing on the quality of chronic disease care (asthma, diabetes, depression, chronic back pain) in community, primary care, and acute care settings and, with a multidisciplinary team, has developed a widely disseminated a low literacy diabetes intervention. She has successfully partnered with clinicians to develop means of feasibly and effectively incorporating a self-management intervention in community (vs academic) primary care practice settings serving vulnerable patient populations, as well as with clinicians in the VA Medical System to better understand the discharge experiences of rural veterans. Most recently, Dr. Wallace is also involved in a program of research focusing on how to best account for patients’ social support during routine discharge planning and in risk modeling. As a consequence of her methodological interest in how to best implement research into clinical settings, Dr. Wallace was one of only ten national experts appointed to the NIH workgroup on implementation methodology.
