Research description

My research focuses on helping primary care practices better deliver preventive care. Studies include promoting team based care to improve delivery of preventive services, understanding factors that influence uptake of new guidelines, using information technology to better engage patients in care, use of conversation aids to promote shared decision-making, feasible primary care interventions to counsel patients about weight loss, and understanding a primary care center's capacity to care for new Medicaid beneficiaries.
