Darin Zahuranec’s survey study, “Variability in physician prognosis and recommendations after intracerebral hemorrhage” published in Neurology found that physicians vary substantially in ICH prognostic estimates and treatment recommendations. This study suggests that variability could have a profound effect on life and death decision-making and treatment for ICH.


Several CBSSM-affiliated faculty and alumni were co-authors: Angie Fagerlin, Meghan Roney, Andrea Fuhrel-Forbis, and Lewis Morgenstern.

Using GIS and Social Autopsy to understand where and why mothers and babies are dying in rural northern Ghana

Abstract: Cheryl Moyer, PhD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Learning Health Sciences and Obstetrics & Gynecology, will describe a 3-year, USAID-funded project that involves identifying all maternal and neonatal deaths and ‘near-misses’ (those who survive a life-threatening event) across four districts in northern Ghana and conducting detailed verbal and social autopsies to determine both the biomedical cause of death and the sociocultural contributors. The project, known as PREMAND (PREventing Maternal And Neonatal Deaths), also involves geocoding the location of births, deaths, health facilities, traditional healer compounds, and other important landmarks to explore the role of geography in influencing outcomes.
