Dr. Ranak Trivedi is a clinical and health psychologist, assistant professor in the Dept. of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University and an investigator at the Center for Innovation to Implementation at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. Dr. Trivedi envisions a health care system that is framily centered, wherein framily (family members and friends) and patients' receive culturally attuned care. Her studies have provided insights into how framilies and chronically and seriously patients collaborate around their mutual health, understanding the impact of their interpersonal relationship on chronic illness self-management, and the individual, dyadic, and systems-level barriers that they encounter. She has developed two technology-enabled dyadic self-management programs to address the stress management needs of both patients and their framily. She has been PI or co-I on several VA and NIH funded projects, including a 4-site, virtual center of excellence that will address the unmet needs of caregivers of seriously ill Veterans. Dr. Trivedi serves as the Director of Training and Education at the Center for Innovation to Implementation at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, Training Director for the Elizabet Dole National Center of Excellence for Veteran and Caregiver Research, and the Director of Caregiving and Family Systems at the Stanford Center for Asian Health Research and Education (CARE).
