Tessa Matson is a doctoral student in the Department of Health Services at the University of Washington. She works at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute as a Research Interventionist and is a Pre-Doctoral Fellow at VA Puget Sound Health Services Research & Development (HSR&D). Her career goal is to integrate addiction health services within primary care in patient-centered ways that reduce disparities and help patients feel valued and more informed about treatment options. She is currently evaluating the effect of VA’s National Healthcare Directive—a national policy outlining respectful delivery of care to transgender Veterans—on receipt of evidence-based care for unhealthy alcohol use among transgender VA patients with alcohol use disorder. Her dissertation work will focus on improving measurement-based care (e.g., routine screening and systematic assessment) for managing cannabis use disorder in primary care.
