health care delivery scienceShared decision making
I am a clinician-researcher with interests in shared decision making, risk communication, the design and evaluation of decision support interventions, and their integration into clinical practice. I am a tenured Professor of Community and Family Medicine, based at the The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. I am an Honorary Distinguished Research Professor at Cardiff University. I was Director of Research at the School of Medicine (2008-2011). I have a permanent personal chair at IQ Scientific Institute for Quality of Healthcare, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre, Netherlands. I developed the International Family Practice Maturity Matrix, a measure of organizational development in primary care. I have co-chaired the International Patient Decision Aids Standards Collaboration since 2004, producing a checklist and validated instrument. In 2013, I received a lifetime achievement award at the 7th International Shared Decision Making Conference, Lima, Peru. I have published 321 peer-reviewed articles and authored / co-authored several books. I am lead editor of Shared decision making in healthcare: Achieving evidence-based patient choice, 3rd ed. (Oxford University Press, 2016, forthcoming). I have developed the Observer OPTION instrument, a widely used observer-based measure of shared decision making, and CollaboRATE, a new patient reported measure of shared decision making that is being evaluated in clinical settings.
