Dr. Knoepke is an Instructor in the Division of Cardiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
After completing both his Ph.D in Social Work at the University of Denver and his MSW at Washington University in St. Louis, Dr. Knoepke completed a postdoctoral fellowship in shared decision making and health services research at the Adult & Child
Consortium for Outcomes Research & Delivery Science (ACCORDS) at the UC School of Medicine. His current research interests include the assessment, elicitation, and inclusion of patient values in treatment decisions, especially decisions which are
technologically complex, emotionally burdensome, or stigmatized. He is also interested in patient information acquisition activity outside the medical encounter, especially as this information informs treatment planning decisions.
