  • Title: Project SPARK
    • Contributors: Dr. Lauren Whiteside (site PI), Dr. Jason Goldstick (PI at the University of Michigan),
    • Objective: Externally validate an existing risk prediction tool that predicts future firearm involvement in a cohort of ED patients ages 18-24 at three diverse, urban EDs.  This project is funded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
    • Contributors: Dr. Lauren Whiteside (site co-PI), Dr. Herbie Duber (site co-PI),  Dr. Callan Fockele, Dr. Liza Rosenman, Dr. Axel Adams
    • Objective: Determine the effectiveness of an extended release injectable buprenorphine (CAM2038) compared to a standard approach using sublingual buprenorphine for ED patients with opioid use disorder not currently involved in treatment that have symptoms of opioid withdrawal.  The main outcomes are engagement in treatment at 7days and 30 days.  This project is funded by the NIDA Clinical Trials Network (CTN)
  • Title: ED-LINC
    • Contributors: Dr. Lauren Whiteside (PI) Dr. Doug Zatzick (Psychiatry), Dr. Caleb Banta-Green (ADAI), Dr. Canada Parrish,
    • Objective: Test the effectiveness of the Emergency Department Longitudinal Integrated Care (ED-LINC) intervention which is a multi-component intervention using the collaborative care framework for patients with opioid use disorder seeking care in the ED.  Patients will be recruited from the HMC ED and the ED at Northwest Medical Center.  This is a R01 funded by NIDA.
  • Title: Implementation of Contingency Management and the Community Reinforcement Approach in Permanent Supportive Housing for Residents who Use Methamphetamine
    • Contributors: Dr. Callan Fockele (PI)
    • Objective: Examine how contingency management coupled with the community reinforcement approach (CM+CRA) can be integrated into permanent supportive housing for residents who use methamphetamine. This work will provide preliminary data needed for future grant proposals to evaluate CM+CRA in permanent supportive housing using an effectiveness-implementation hybrid design.
