Dr. Kazmerski’s research currently focuses on the clinical and economic impact of integrated behavioral health within pediatric primary and subspecialty care.  Dr. Kazmerski has conducted research to evaluate the developmental screening, behavioral treatment recommendations and referral practices of primary care providers for patients presenting with behavioral pediatric concerns in order to best identify behavioral health needs of providers and patients.  Her research has led to the implementation of medical provider didactic and applied training, behavioral health consultations, expansion of integrated behavioral health services, improving provider/staff perceptions of behavioral health and the use of brief behavioral education conducted by medical providers within routine primary care or subspecialty care visits to increase prevention of behavioral health needs.  Dr. Kazmerski is currently evaluating these expansions of her service, as well as additional modalities including telemedicine.
