The Health Communication Research Center’s co-director Glen Cameron, PhD, was part of an interdisciplinary University of Missouri team that recently announced a new $4.5 million grant to help study patient centered outcomes. Funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the grant is a five-year project that will form a new center on campus, the MU Center for Patient-centered Outcomes Research.
Led by Dr. David Mehr, the William C. Allen Professor and director of research in the Department of Family and Community Medicine, the School of Medicine, the Sinclair School of Nursing, the School of Health Professions and the School of Journalism’s HCRC will all play a role in improving health outcomes. Cameron and the HCRC team will focus on using Treepple, a tailored health app, with patients transitioning from skilled nursing units as a means of reinforcing health messages and sharing data with patients’ caregivers and treatment team.
