research overview Dr. Schurman is a practicing pediatric psychologist with expertise in the areas of both pain management and gastroenterology, having established and co-directed the Children’s Mercy (CM) Abdominal Pain Program (APP) for more than 15 years. She maintains an active clinical research program focused on understanding the interaction of psychosocial, inflammatory, and endocrine factors in the experience of chronic abdominal pain, with emphasis on developing strategies for pain prevention and early intervention that can be rapidly translated back into clinical care. It is noteworthy that the APP, a nationally recognized clinical program, is set up to allow every patient to be a research participant in some fashion, from retrospective reporting on naturalistic outcomes and trajectories of treatment response to prospective randomized clinical trials. This clinical research enterprise has led to a strong research pipeline and track record of publication and presentation, with more than 50 manuscripts published in peer-reviewed journals and more than 80 presentations at national or international meetings, as well as authoritative chapters on chronic abdominal pain for the Oxford Textbook of Pediatric Pain and the Handbook of Pediatric Psychology. She has been a PI or co-PI for several grant-funded projects. Over the past several years, she has worked on developing a collaborative research program that works to harness the heterogeneity of the population of youth with chronic functional abdominal pain to better understand and match treatment to the unique set of contributors in each clinical patient. This work holds considerable promise to revolutionize clinical practice by demonstrating proof of concept for individualized tailoring of evidence-based treatment packages in pediatric abdominal pain as an exemplar condition. Dr. Schurman also is the current Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology, an official journal of the Society of Pediatric Psychology (Division 54 of the American Psychological Association).
