CBSSM's Reshma Jagsi, Sarah Hawley and colleagues found that only half of women who could benefit from genetic testing get it, and often not before they have surgery. Steven Katz was lead author on this study.

Title: Peri-endoscopy Antithrombotic Management: Using Systems Engineering to Improve Clinical Decision-Making

Abstract: Surgical procedures, such as gastrointestinal endoscopy, present management challenges for patients taking chronic antithrombic medications. Following an in depth analysis of current practices, we re-organized care delivery to standardize clinical decision making for these patients using health systems engineering and implementation science methods.

Working Group

The CBSSM Working Group is a forum for investigators interested in CBSSM-related topics (e.g., patient communications, decision making, ethical dilemmas, etc.) to participate in the CBSSM community by sharing their ideas and receiving constructive feedback. These meetings provide an opportunity to receive feedback on research proposals, survey instruments, interview guides, drafts of papers, grant applications, or any other aspects of projects at any stage of development. Our goal is to provide an informal setting that can help to move a project forward, and repeat visits are allowed as appropriate.

While participation in Working Group is not formally limited to CBSSM affiliates, we ask and expect that presenters return the favor for others by participating in other Working Group sessions beyond their own, ideally becoming part of the CBSSM community. The Working Group is not an external service but a part of the CBSSM community's commitment to support each other's research and learning. We welcome those interested in CBSSM to use the Working Group as an opportunity to meet potential collaborators, to learn new methods and perspectives, and to share their own insights to the betterment of others.

The working group usually meets on Tuesdays or Wednesdays at 4pm in NCRC B16-266C. To be added to the email list, please contact Amy Lynn at lynnam@umich.edu OR join our email list.

Title: Patient Education and Care: Challenges and Opportunities in Chronic Kidney Disease

Abstract: Twenty million people, or 20% of U.S. adults ages 60 and older, have chronic kidney disease (CKD). CKD is a significant public health threat carrying high risk of morbidity, mortality, and renal failure. Health behavior theory suggests that patient motivation and healthy behavior change require patients to have knowledge of their chronic condition, as well as the self-efficacy and skills to do what is needed to stay healthy. The chronic care model promotes early patient engagement in care. Yet, less than 20% of  patients with CKD are aware of their diagnosis. Even patients who are aware often do not understand the implications of their CKD diagnosis or what they need to do to optimize their health. Dr. Wright Nunes will discuss her research aimed to develop, test, and disseminate sustainable patient-centric education and coaching support interventions to improve quality of care and outcomes in patients who have CKD.

Active Year(s): 2008-2011

The goal of the MCI Risk Communication Study is to develop and evaluate a risk communication protocol to convey diagnostic and risk information to MCI patients and family members. A multi-step protocol will be created, taking into account principles of health risk communication, patient and provider preferences, and ethical issues involved in working with cognitively impaired populations. The protocol will be delivered by health care professionals with risk communication experience and tested on 10 patient/care-partner dyads recruited from Alzheimer’s Disease Centers at the University of Michigan and Boston University. The results of this pilot study will help inform the fourth trial of REVEAL.
