Dr. Kruse's research includes both quantitative and qualitative analyses of observational data and initiatives to improve the delivery of preventive services. Her projects include an evaluation of an electronic health record-embedded referral to an internal tobacco treatment coordinator in local community health centers, the effect of financial incentives on documentation of smoking status in our electronic health record (EHR), an evaluation of overuse of colonoscopy in a local group practice, a measure of the prevalence of tobacco use among a cohort of patients starting treatment for HIV in Uganda, a study of the implementation of a structured field on the hospital admission order set to measure the prevalence of secondhand tobacco smoke exposure among inpatients, and an international survey about how providers are being trained to deliver tobacco treatment around the world.
