Dr. Cizik is a health economics and outcomes researcher (HEOR) with a primary research focus using Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) at the point of care to support surgeons and patients in preference-based (patient-centered) shared decision-making for surgical treatment decisions. Her research hopes to improve the value of healthcare by improving the surgeon/patient decision-making experience. Her clinical area has mostly focused in orthopaedic surgery, specifically spine and trauma subspecialties, but also includes all musculoskeletal care, involving complex decision-making of operative versus non-operative care versus the decision to wait and reevaluate treatment options at a future timepoint. She has collaborated with colleagues in multiple other surgical disciplines as well. Dr. Cizik has a diverse training background that includes patient-reported outcome measurement, economic modelling, health services, biostatistics, epidemiology, and public health and health policy. She has extensive experience and expertise selecting PROMs; implementing PROMS, including PROMIS measures in both academic and community care settings; enrolling patients for prospective and randomized clinical trials, and successfully collecting PROMs at longitudinal follow-up timepoints. She teaches courses related to PROMs and preference-based patient measurement and mentors medical students, residents, and graduate students in disciplines such as population health and bioengineering.
