Shannon Kugley

Researcher

Shannon Kugley is a Researcher at Chapin Hall. Kugley provides organizational and regulatory support for Chapin Hall evaluations of child welfare programs at Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). In addition, she coordinates evidence reviews to appraise the methodologic quality of interventions considered for implementation by DCFS and other policymakers. Kugley is exploring innovative approaches to information retrieval, knowledge discovery, and rapid evidence synthesis to accelerate dissemination of promising practices for youth and caregivers in the child welfare system. Kugley consults with Chapin Hall to develop literature search strategies and select information management tools to support literature reviews.

Kugley has more than 15 years’ experience with information retrieval, evidence synthesis, and data management in healthcare delivery and research. Prior to joining Chapin Hall, Kugley rendered work plans for projects commissioned by the Effective Healthcare Program at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and organized multidisciplinary teams to execute complex comparative effectiveness reviews of behavioral and health interventions. From 2006 to 2010, Kugley worked for a Human Research Protections Program (HRPP), where she provided training to biomedical and clinical researchers in protocol development and informed consent and issued non-human subjects, nonresearch, and exempt determinations. As a librarian for an academic medical center, Kugley prepared health information packets for patients and developed point-of-care evidence summaries for the clinical informatics consult service. Kugley is a collaborator and co-author on several AHRQ-funded systematic reviews and lead author of a Campbell Collaboration guide for information retrieval.

Kugley received a Masters in Library and Information Science from Wayne State University and a Bachelors of Science degree from Michigan State University. She obtained certification as an Institutional Review Board professional (CIP) from Public Responsibility in Research and Medicine (PRIMR) while working as protocol analyst for the Vanderbilt University Health Science Institutional Review Board.
