The Colorado Program for Patient-Centered Decisions
Led by Dr. Dan Matlock, the Colorado Program for Patient
Centered Decisions takes a broad view of shared decision making and
brings together multidisciplinary expertise in development of materials,
measurement of outcomes, and implementation into practice settings.
This group has a track record of funding from private foundations, the
American College of Cardiology, the NIH, and the Patient Centered
Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Some of the tools they have
developed are available at patientdecisionaid.org.
Primary Palliative Care and Advance Care Planning Research
Primary care settings are well-equipped to improve advance care
planning for older adults and care for individuals with serious
illnesses. Led by Dr. Hillary Lum, our work focuses on designing,
testing and implementing novel interventions such as advance care
planning group visits and electronic health record-based tools. We work
closely with the health care system and community partners to engage
patients and families in meaningful conversations. Learn more at ColoradoCarePlanning.org or email ColoradoCarePlanning@cuanschutz.edu.
