Patient-Centered Outcomes

Patient-centered outcomes rely on treatment plans where the physician and the patient work together to evaluate the evidence and the projected outcome.

Doctors speaking with a patient

Leveraging local data captured through routine patient care coupled with patient-reported outcomes (PRO) allows us to analyze patterns and results that include a focus on the importance of quality of life to drive evidence based decision-making.

Current or Recently Completed Research Projects:

  • Evaluating Patient Education Materials for Free-Flap Patients with Head and Neck Cancer
  • Evaluating Patient Education Materials for Complex Facial Reconstruction
  • Improving the Informed Consent Process for Operative Procedures
