The goal of this proposal is the development of “bottom-up” measures of daily experience, combining elements of time sampling with detailed episodic reinstantiation of events. Future use of the measures includes research into well-being and age-related changes in activities and experiences. I will (1) design methodological studies for the development and validation of these measures (Event Reconstruction Method, Day Reconstruction Method, and future variants); (2) develop the question program for pilot studies using the measures; (3) supervise the implementation of the pilot studies in form of web-based self-administered questionnaires; (4) participate in meetings in Princeton; and (5) present and publish relevant results.

The University of Michigan ranks No. 11 in a new list of most-cited researchers produced by Thompson Reuters, with 27 U-M scientists determined by the company to be in the top 1 percent of their fields.
The vast majority of oncologists (84%) say that they consider costs to the patient when recommending cancer treatments. But fewer than half of oncologists frequently discuss cost issues with their patients. These are some of the results of a national survey conducted by Peter Neuman, ScD (Tufts Medical Center) and CBSSM's former Director Peter A. Ubel, MD, funded by the California HealthCare Foundation. Results were published in the January 2010 Health Affairs. Ubel comments: "Oncologists understand, from up close, that cancer diagnoses and treatment leave many people bankrupt. They want to do what is medically right for their patients, but they are struggling to figure out what, at the same time, is economically right for them." Read the article here.
