Dana Verhoeven, PhD, is a postdoctoral Cancer Research Training Award fellow in the Health Systems and Interventions Research Branch of the Healthcare Delivery Research Program.
Dana’s research focuses on bridging the scientist practitioner gap in healthcare by evaluating organizational factors that impact healthcare team functioning and developing interventions to enhance care delivery and patient outcomes. At NCI, she will support the NCI Multilevel Intervention Training Institute (MLTI) to develop a training evaluation program and will also assist in defining the scope of organizational measures being assessed across NCORP projects.
Dana earned her MS and PhD in Industrial Organizational Psychology from Clemson University, where she conducted research supported by numerous funding agencies, such as NASA, NSF, Army Research Institute, and Prisma Health. Her work applies both quantitative and qualitative methods to assess barriers that inhibit care coordination both within and between care teams. Leveraging a multiteam systems perspective, she strives to implement evidence-based practices to enhance team processes and effectiveness across high-stress contexts, such as healthcare.
