Patient education

The goal of this research program is to advance the science and practice of patient education and improve patient self-management of chronic medical conditions. The program provides consultation, intervention development, behavioral interventionist training, and qualitative research design and analysis to Mayo Clinic investigators interested in patient education and health behavior change.

Kristin S. Vickers Douglas, Ph.D., L.P., has been directing the program for more than 10 years. She has also held a joint appointment in Mayo Clinic Health Care Policy and Research, providing additional collaborative opportunities.
