Christine Paine MPH
Christine Paine is a clinical research coordinator at PolicyLab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). She is interested in improving health outcomes for children and adolescents in general (both locally and globally) and, more specifically, in preventing violence in this population (including the prevention of child abuse and intimate partner violence). Currently, she is working with Dr. Aletha Akers to improve adolescent reproductive health.
Previously, Ms. Paine has evaluated hospital-based and public health programs, including a parenting program called PriCARE, the Children and Mom’s Project at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children which identifies and helps victims of domestic violence, CHOP’s rapid response system, and the Pennsylvania Cancer Education Network. She coordinated efforts to develop clinical guidelines for determining which young children with intracranial hemorrhage to evaluate for physical abuse, and she helped evaluate the implementation of clinical guidelines for evaluating infants with femur fractures at CHOP for physical abuse. She has also coordinated the development of a novel video method for measuring alarm fatigue in nurses and identified ways in which clinicians can improve the transition of care for adolescents and young adults with inflammatory bowel disease. She received her Master of Public Health with a concentration in Community Health and Prevention from Drexel University.
