Dr. Rosland studies family support for chronic condition care in the healthcare and community settings. She is the Principal Investigator for a VA HSR&D funded 5-year study to determine how the CO-IMPACT program improves patient engagement and lowers risk for diabetes complications, through technology-enhanced coaching of patients along with supportive family members. She is also the Principal Investigator of an NIH NIDDK funded 5-year study of the Family Action for Health (FAM-ACT) program, in partnership with the CHASS Center in Detroit, MI. In FAM-ACT, Community Health Workers train family members of adults with diabetes in effective support techniques, with the goal of making successful diabetes management easier for patients to achieve and to sustain.
Dr. Rosland also studies primary care delivery for patients with complex healthcare needs. She is Co-Principal Investigator for the High Risk Veterans (RIVET) 5-year QUERI Program, which aims to advance the ability of primary care teams to provide comprehensive, evidence-based care for complex, high-risk patients. She also leads VA-based projects to develop informatics tools that use real-time health system data and machine learning to support effective primary care management for complex patients. Dr. Rosland has Directed the VA National Office of Primary Care High Risk Network and Analytic Core, a nation-wide investigator network examining trends and innovations in primary care for high-risk patients, since 2014.
Dr. Rosland serves as the Director of the RIVET QUERI Program National Mentoring Core and mentors researchers and students at all levels. In all of her work, Dr. Rosland is passionate about community-partnered and healthcare systems-partnered research, robust and creative dissemination of research findings, and helping new investigators thrive.
Recognition of Dr. Rosland’s research contributions includes selection for Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program and VA HSR&D Career Development Awards, the AAMC Early and Mid-Career Womens Faculty Leadership Programs, and the National Academy of Medicine Scientific Advisory Panel on the Evidence for Patient and Family-Centered Care.
Dr. Rosland is board certified in Internal Medicine, and serves as a Primary Care Provider for Veterans at the VA Pittsburgh Medical Center.
