    Linda N. Geng, MD, PhD

    Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy scholarly interests are focused on defining, studying, and improving patients' diagnostic journeys. What prolongs the journey to the correct diagnosis and how can we shorten it? With this question in mind, we are exploring crowdsourcing, informatics/AI, health data visualization, and advanced laboratory testing as ways to help tackle the toughest cases in medicine-- complex, rare, and mystery conditions.

    With the COVID pandemic, the puzzling and complex illness of post-acute COVID-19 syndrome (PACS) or long COVID came to light. Together with a multidisciplinary group of physicians and researchers, we launched a program here at Stanford to advance the care and understanding of PACS. Our goal is to better understand the natural history, clinical symptomatology, immunological response, risk factors, and subgroup stratification for PACS. We are also actively assessing management strategies that may be effective for heterogeneous PACS symptoms.

  • Karleen Giannitrapani

    Karleen Giannitrapani

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Primary Care and Population Health)

    BioIn contrast to bounded teams with static membership, dynamic teaming reflects the common challenge of interdisciplinary healthcare teams with changing rosters. Such dynamic collaboration is critical to addressing multi-faceted problems and individualizing care. At present, off the shelf interventions to improve the way healthcare teams work - often assume static and bounded teams. Dr Giannitrapani intends to leverage design approaches to build a new kind of healthcare “teaming intervention,” which respects the nature of their constantly changing membership and more closely aligns with how healthcare teams actually collaborate. Their expertise includes organizational behavior, building interdisciplinary teams, implementation science, mixed methods-research, quality improvement, pain and palliative care research, and global health.

    In addition to the Assistant Professor role in Division of Primary Care and Population Health at Stanford University School of Medicine they serve as the quality lead for the section of Palliative Medicine. They are also a Core Investigator at the Center for Innovation to Implementation (Ci2i) in the VA Palo Alto Health Care System and serve as PI or co-investigator on multiple ongoing studies representing over 25 million dollars of competitive government grant funding. They are also a Director of the VA Quality Improvement Resource Center (QuIRC) for Palliative Care, supporting Geriatrics and Extended Care programs for 170 Veterans Affairs facilities nationally. In QuIRC they lead a portfolio of projects on improving the processes that interdisciplinary teams can leverage to improve pain and symptom management among high-risk patients; a specific focus of their work is to bridge the gap of poor palliative care integration in the perioperative period.

    They have given hundreds of presentations and have over 70 peer reviewed publications in high quality medical and health services delivery journals such as Medical Care, JAMA Surgery, the Journal of General Internal Medicine, the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management and Pain Medicine. They received a 5-year VA Career Development Award on building better teams across disciplines and was an American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine Research Scholar for related work.
