Dr. Man Hung of the Department of Orthopaedics has been awarded a three-year grant from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases for her U01 proposal, “Improving Patient-Reported Outcome Measures for Orthopaedic Research and Practice.” Musculoskeletal diseases have an enormous impact on health, affecting half of those 65 years and older.
The project goal is to establish benchmarks and interpretability in patient-reported outcome measures. These can then be used to evaluate clinical treatment alternatives and help clinicians inform patients of outcomes after treatment.Co-Investigators include Dr. Charles Saltzman, Professor and Chair of Orthopaedics, and Dr. Tom Greene, Professor of Internal Medicine and Interim Chair of Population Health Sciences.
