Dr. Erin Hahn is a research scientist with Kaiser Permanente Southern California (KPSC), trained in health services research and implementation science. She is also an Associate Professor of Health Systems Science in the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine, and a Project Scientist at the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center at UCLA. Her primary research interests are quality of care in oncology and the implementation of evidence-informed practices. She is particularly interested in the post-treatment care of cancer survivors. Dr. Hahn has led several large multisite studies of cancer care delivery including assessing utilization of low-value cancer care services, adherence to guideline recommendations for adolescent and young adult cancer survivors, and exploring the perceptions of cancer survivorship care. She is currently Principal Investigator of multiple externally funded studies, including a pragmatic randomized controlled trial of distress screening in oncology using a hybrid effectiveness-implementation design, a randomized controlled trial of a decision aid for breast cancer screening in younger women, a behavioral study of patient engagement in colorectal cancer screening, and development of inter-regional cancer statistics across Kaiser Permanente. Dr. Hahn is also co-investigator for the National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) and site lead for the Cancer Care Delivery Research component. She is currently co-investigator and qualitative lead on a large multi-year trial of implementation strategies for cervical cancer screening. Additionally, Dr. Hahn is a member of the KPSC Care Improvement Research Team (CIRT) housed within the Division of Health Services Research and Implementation Science. CIRT focuses on the implementation, dissemination, scale-up and spread of effective programs throughout the health system. Dr. Hahn has received several awards for her work including the Health Care Systems Research Network Early Career Investigator award and the UCLA Jan R. Cloyde Investigator Award.
