Evaluation of the Group Decision Making Process of Clinical Guideline Panels
Both public health and healthcare financing depend on reliable, trustworthy Clinical Practice Guidelines. To understand group judgment processes that are foundations of the CPG development, Dr. Hamm is analyzing judgment data collected from individual members of specialty societies’ guideline development panels. Judgments collected before, during, and after the panel meetings allow insight into the changes in opinion induced by panel discussions, and the degree to which panel decisions have the full endorsement of panel members.

Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)
Development of a Patient-Directed Queries Network to Engage Patients and Prioritize Their Questions to Inform the PCORI Research Agenda.
In collaboration with a patient advisory board, a patient advocacy group, a community coalition, and three practice-based research networks, we will address gaps in patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) methods in the areas of engagement and prioritization, focusing on longitudinal engagement between researchers and existing patient- and community-based organizations and use of value of information calculations. We will learn how these successful groups have achieved engagement and prioritized opportunities. We will then develop recommendations for enhancements.

“Limited Competition: Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Program Infrastructure for Clinical and Translational Research”
We propose to strengthen productive bidirectional relationships between researchers and communities in Oklahoma with an emphasis on primary care clinicians, pharmacists, and American Indian communities, expand community test sites by enhancing three practice-based research networks and build a system-wide dissemination/ implementation/diffusion infrastructure consisting of county health improvement organizations (CHIOs) linked to each other and, through regional coordinating centers, to the academic research partners.

National Science Foundation
Collaborative Research: DRU: Hypothesis Generation and Feedback in Dynamic Decision Making.
The purpose of the portion of this project to be conducted at OUHSC is to validate findings from Dr. Thomas’s HyGene and Dr. Gonzalez’s cogIBLT modeling studies, using stimulus materials that have high medical fidelity and using individuals at various levels of education. As a result of the work, the MEDIC software will have realistic tasks ready for use in further research, and the HyGene and cogIBLT models will have been fit to data from experienced diagnosers and decision makers. This will provide insight into the kinds of training needed to prepare clinicians to deal with decision making about dynamic medical situations.
