She satisfies her passion for patient-centered care by supporting a study funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute aiming to promote shared decision-making conversations for cancer screening among patients 75 years and older. In addition, she aids in evaluating the validity and expanding generalizability of the Shared Decision Making (SDM) Process survey for decisions related to cancer screening, elective surgery, and use of medications for treatment of depression and ADHD. This study is made possible by funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
