New Patient-Centered Outcomes Research-Institute (PCORI) Project

Congratulations to Center faculty, Douglas Zatzick, MD on his newly funded five year comparative effectiveness trial. This research aims to evaluate two approaches to the care of injured patients: a team intervention approach that integrates front-line trauma center staff with peer interventionists versus trauma surgery notification of patient emotional distress with recommendation for mental health consultation. The peer-integrated team intervention will be supported by new technology that allows for additional emergency department care coordination and follow-up.
