Dr. Radhakrishnan will present "Delivering high-quality cancer care: the team, the team, the team."
Dr. Radhakrishnan will explore the barriers and facilitators to cancer specialists and primary care providers working collaboratively to deliver cancer care across the continuum.
Dr. Terman will present "Risk-based modeling in seizure prediction: leveraging absolute risk to understand absolute risk reduction."
Dr. Terman will discuss the concept of risk-based modeling to explore heterogeneity of treatment effects. The typical approach to understanding how the effect of a treatment is via forest plots, or "one-at-a-time" subgroup analyses. However, such an approach has flaws in terms of false positives (multiple comparisons) and false negatives (underpowered). In contrast, risk-based modeling calculates a patient's absolute multivariable risk, and then determines a patient's absolute risk reduction from there, which improves power by better distinguishing patients and reduces false positives by virtue of reducing the number of statistical comparisons. He will apply this to the clinical problem of understanding the influence of antiseizure medications on seizure risk, in patients with epilepsy.
Dr. Thompson will present "Improving Cardiac Rehab Participation Through Data, Collaboration, and Policy"
Cardiac rehab use is beneficial for patients with recent acute cardiovascular events, but is underutilized. This presentation will demonstrate how we are using data, multicenter collaboration, and policy efforts to improve cardiac rehab participation in Michigan and nationwide.
The IHPI Research Seminar Series is a lecture-based program designed to share innovative health services research topics, studies, and programs, with clinicians, faculty, research staff, and students from a variety of disciplines.
Following the presentations, stay on to join an informal breakout room from 3:00-3:10 to connect with colleagues.
