Chris Knoepke is an Instructor in the Division of Cardiology at the University of Colorado, having joined ACCORDS and the Shared Decision Making Core in 2015 as a Postdoctoral Fellow. His research investigates means by which to improve the inclusion of patient values and voice in medical decisions, especially those which are technologically complex, emotionally burdensome, or for stigmatized conditions. He holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Monmouth College, a Masters of Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis, and a PhD in Social Work from the University of Denver. His work is currently supported by three NIH-funded trials of decision support materials (two from NHLBI and one from NIMH), pilot project funding from both the Palliative Care Research Collaborative and the Colorado Center for Women’s Health Research, and a career development award from the American Heart Association.
