Marleen Kunneman, Ph.D., conducts her research at the Knowledge and Evaluation Research Unit at Mayo Clinic. She is interested in patient-clinician conversations during clinical encounters and patient involvement in making decisions about health and care (shared decision-making).
Dr. Kunneman aims to identify how patient-clinician conversations can be improved and translate these findings to daily care. These conversations should reflect a human connection between the patient and clinician, instead of a mechanical and formal procedure. Dr. Kunneman's goal is to ensure that all patients receive care that best fits them and their lives — care that makes sense in their particular situation.
