Bringing Clinicians Up To Speed On Stats And Business Is Goal Of Nih Grant To Emory University Center For Clinical Evaluation Sciences

Center faculty are designing curriculum for an intense, one-week workshop that will provide clinicians an overview of population-based research and its value in answering research questions that may be applied to their own patients and practices. The federally funded workshop is being planned for Spring 1998.

"We're pleased to be able to serve as 'interpreters'."

Epidemiology, health care economics, informatics and outcomes research will be taught by center staff as well as other faculty from Emory?s medical, public health and nursing schools, Atlanta?s Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Morehouse School of Medicine

"I'm excited by the opportunity to educate health care professionals from across the Atlanta area about population-based health care research," says Risa P. Hayes, Ph.D., associ
