Laura E. Walker, M.D., conducts research to improve care delivery through shared decision-making, guided conversations regarding end-of-life wishes, equity in both access and representation, and interpersonal interactions between patient and provider.
Ensuring a patient-oriented health care experience is a result of how, when and where care is delivered; interpersonal interactions between providers and patients; providing care that is concordant with patient values; and care being delivered from providers who look like their patients. Keeping care close to home, effective and meaningful is the goal of Dr. Walker's work.
