Completed Research Projects

  1. Physician Drug Testing Survey Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Sept. 2003
    The purpose of this study was to conduct a survey of a nationally representative sample of primary care physicians to determine their attitudes toward, knowledge of, and use of office based drug testing of adolescents.

  2. The Risks and Benefits of Home Drug Testing Policies for Adolescents Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Nov. 2001
    In this study we evaluated drug testing kits sold on the internet as well as the drug testing policies recommended by eight internet sites.

  3. Managing Adolescent Substance Abuse Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, April, 2001
    The goal of this pilot study was to develop and test a new, brief counseling approach for managing adolescent alcohol and drug use in the medical office. This study provided the foundation for the current study, A Medical Office Intervention for Adolescent Drug Use. Results will be available soon in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

  4. The Evaluation of a New Alcohol Policy for MA State Colleges Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Nov. 1999
    The purpose of this study was to investigate and evaluate the process and outcomes of implementing a new alcohol policy at 11 Massachusetts state public colleges and universities.

  5. Identifying Adolescent Alcohol Use in the Medical Office Funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, Sept. 1999
    The primary purpose of this study was to refine and validate a brief screening test for adolescent substance use that can be used by health care professionals in the medical office setting. It led to the development of a short tool known by a mnemonic, CRAFFT, based on the first letter of key words in the 6 easy-to-remember questions.
