Dr. Shuman focuses on reducing health disparities and improving care for vulnerable populations (perinatal substances users, drug-exposed infants, sexual minorities, postpartum women, neonatal intensive care patients) to improve care delivery and outcomes. He utilizes implementation science frameworks and methods to improve implementation and receipt of best practices. He is an expert and reknown scientist for clinician and consumer implementation of evidence-based practices. He adopts novel approaches, like arts-based interventions, to motivate practice and behavioral change. In addition to these efforts, Dr. Shuman is an expert in creating clinical contexts that are more conducive to change and implementation. As such, he is a highly sought after speaker and consultant by many healthcare systems, companies, and leaders.
