  • Adequate Selection of Patients for Thyroid Biopsy: Evaluation of a Shared Decision Making Conversation Tool Rochester, Minn., Eau Claire, Wis.

    The purpose of this study is to field test and update an existing conversation aid prototype designed to support shared decision making in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid cancer, and to conduct a pilot randomized multi-center trial to test the refined conversation aid.

  • Patient-Centered Exploration to Understand their perception of comprehensive regenerative care (NA) Rochester, Minn.

    The study purpose is to understand patients’ with the diagnosis of Diabetes Mellitus type 1 or 2 perception of the care they receive in the Diabetes clinic or Diabetes technology clinic at Mayo Clinic and to explore and to identify the healthcare system components patients consider important to be part of the comprehensive regenerative care in the clinical setting.

    However, before we can implement structural changes or design interventions to promote comprehensive regenerative care in clinical practice, we first need to characterize those regenerative practices occurring today, patients expectations, perceptions and experiences about comprehensive regenerative care and determine the factors that promote and hinder their occurrence. Therefore, as exploratory work to inform the development of a comprehensive regenerative care clinic concept, we propose a qualitative study to explore patient perceptions of what it means to experience comprehensive regenerative care in the context of a clinical encounter.

    We hypothesize that the findings from this study will improve the care of patients with diabetes based on the concept of comprehensive regenerative care.  The findings from this study may also lead to better care plans that are congruent with patient goals and context, therefore leading to improvements in outcomes that matter to these patients.

  • Shared Decision Making in Patients with Thyroid Nodules Rochester, Minn.

    The objective of this project is to evaluate a treatment decision aid for patients with low risk thyroid cancer.

  • Stroke Mitigation in A-fib Reasoning Tool for Shared Decision Making (SMART-SDM) (SMART-SDM) Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to assist patients and clinicians weigh the potential harms and benefits of different treatment options for atrial fibrillation.  The plan is to develop an evidence-based decision aid for use in clinical encounters. The goal is to promote evidence-based patient-centered care. Ideally, this care should reflect the research evidence about treatment options for atrial fibrillation. It should also reflect the values and preferences of the informed patient.
