Fernanda S. Rossi, PhD
Fernanda S. Rossi, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist and Clinical Assistant Professor in the Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. She received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Indiana University and completed her clinical psychology predoctoral internship at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS). She then completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in medical informatics and health services research at VAPAHCS and Stanford University. Dr. Rossi’s research has focused on developing, evaluating, and implementing assessment tools and interventions to improve the safety and mental health of individuals at risk of intimate partner violence, suicide, and drug overdose. She is particularly interested in using technology and clinical decision support tools to enhance the quality and implementation of intimate partner violence-, suicide-, and substance use-related care.
Dr. Rossi’s study will develop and test Coordinated Crisis Safety Planning (CRISP), a pioneering safety planning intervention to improve the safety and mental health of individuals at risk of co-occurring psychosocial crises, including suicide, opioid overdose, and intimate partner violence. CRISP uses clinical decision support to enhance the quality, coordination, and implementation of safety planning services for suicide, opioid overdose, and intimate partner violence. A hybrid implementation effectiveness trial will test CRISP in the Emergency Department and inform its sustained implementation in routine emergency care.
