As a mentor, she has extensive experience cultivating the careers of junior faculty, residents, and students.
Dr. D’Onofrio has served as a principle investigator on several grants and has received RO1 funding from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (for emergency department practitioner-performed brief interventions for harmful and hazardous drinking); the National Institute on Drug Abuse (for screening, intervention, treatment and referral of patients with opioid dependence); and several from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). She was also the recipient of a UO1 training grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) that is designed to train physicians, medical students, nurses, social workers and counselors, about screening, brief intervention and referral.
Dr. D’Onofrio has a significant track record of peer-reviewed publications, including the New England Journal of Medicine, Annals of Emergency Medicine, Academic Emergency Medicine, Academic Medicine, and Substance Abuse. Her 2015 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) was the first-known randomized trial comparing three treatment strategies for opioid-dependent patients receiving emergency care. The findings represented a shift in the screening and treatment of patients with chronic opioid dependence.
In addition, she is a national expert in women and heart disease and has been an integral part of the Yale-New Haven Hospital Women’s Heart Program.
