RCS 98-353 – HSR&D Study

 
RCS 98-353
Research Career Scientist Award, Senior
Gayle E. Reiber MPH PhD
VA Puget Sound Health Care System Seattle Division, Seattle, WA
Seattle, WA
Funding Period: January 1999 - April 2016

BACKGROUND/RATIONALE:
Dr. Reiber is a Senior Research Career Scientist in the Department of Veterans Affairs at 8/8's time. She is a Professor of Health Services and Epidemiology at the University of Washington. She received her PhD in Epidemiology and Health Services in 1989 from the UW. She has over 120 publications in peer-reviewed journals, numerous editorials, 14 books or book chapters and a WHO monograph on Developing National Diabetes Control Programs that has been translated into 9 languages. In 2011 she received the Outstanding Mentor Award from the School of Public Health, University of Washington. Dr. Reiber spends 20% of her time with the VA SLC IDEAS Center.



OBJECTIVE(S):
1. Dr. Reiber's primary research goal is to identify new knowledge and test strategies to prevent and treat diabetes, lower limb ulcers and amputations, and improve Veteran self-management skills and understanding of chronic conditions in post-menopausal women Veterans.

2. Dr. Reiber's primary mentoring goal is to work with post-doctoral fellows from the VA Puget Sound HSR&D program, pre-doctoral and post-doctoral fellows in Epidemiology and Health Services at the UW and pre doctoral, post-doctoral and junior faculty in the Utah IDEAS center.

3. Dr. Reiber's primary service goal is to advance the care and service to Veterans with limb loss by participating in development of an amputee registry and repository.

METHODS:
Dr. Reiber conducts research, teaches, mentors future researchers and provides leadership locally, nationally and internationally.

Dr. Reiber is involved in two VA Centers of Excellence headquartered in Seattle: VA HSR&D NW Center for Outcomes Research in Older Adults, and the VA RR&D Center for Limb Loss Prevention and Prosthetic Engineering. In the HSR&D Center she directs the PhD Post-Doctoral Training Program. In the Rehabilitation Center she is involved in research on rehabilitation outcomes. At the University of Washington she teaches grantwriting and directs a T-32 Epidemiology Training Program.

Dr. Reiber is also the Associate Director of the VA COIN in SLC. She spends 20% of her time with the SLC IDEAS Center conducting research and mentoring researchers in SLC.

This past year Dr. Reiber published or has in press 11 peer reviewed manuscripts on topics including diabetes, lower limb ulcers and amputations, collaboration on DoD research and teledermatology.

FINDINGS/RESULTS:
Diabetes mellitus is present in 18% of veterans. Dr. Reiber is focuses on prevention of diabetic ulcers and amputations and treatment strategies for diabetic foot ulcers. This is a significant and expensive problem for veterans and the VHA. Dr. Reiber's epidemiological research is leading to better prognostic treatment of diabetic ulcers and amputees. Her self-management research is leading to better management strategies for patients with diabetes.

IMPACT:
Dr. Reiber continues her diabetes, limb loss and dermatology research which directly and indirectly improves care for Veterans. She is active in mentoring graduate students, post-docs and junior faculty from multiple sites. She recently began a SDR project involving women Veterans in the Women's Health Initiative. She will oversee 14 manuscript teams advance research and understanding on post-menopausal women Veterans.
