In Focus

At CBSSM, we perform the basic and applied scientific research that will improve health care policy and practice to benefit patients and their families, health care providers, third-party payers, policy makers, and the general public. In our "Interactive Decision" web feature, we turn a recent research finding into an interactive decision that a patient or policy maker might face. Read, decide, click—and see how your answers compare with with our respondents.
