Event Type Seminar
"Patient-Centered Health Services Research: Taking Account of Patient Perceptions of Care"
Hosted by: Dr. Hong Yu, Department of Quantitative Health Sciences, UMMS
Location: Albert Sherman Center, 9th floor conference room AS9-2072, UMMS, Worcester
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Presented by, Barbara G. Bokhour, PhD, Acting Associate Director, Center for Healthcare Organization and Implementation Research; Associate Professor, Health Policy & Management, Boston University School of Public Health, ENRM Veterans Affairs Medical Center
The term patient-centered care is becoming pervasive in descriptions of high quality health care. This talk will address exactly what patient-centered care is (and is not), how we can recognize it and the role of health services researchers in examining care from patient perspectives. Dr. Bokhour will review a series of studies about patient perceptions of health, illness and patient care and describe studies of VA initiatives to shift the culture of care to one where patients, not diseases, drive care.
Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Carla McDonald
