Schwartz to receive John M. Eisenberg Award

I’ve recently learned that I will receive the John M. Eisenberg Award for the Practical Application of Medical Decision Making Research at this year’s Society for Medical Decision Making meeting in St. Louis Oct 18-21. John Eisenberg was a pioneer in medical decision making, health services research, and quality measurements. Much of his later work focused on understanding and incorporating patient values and outcomes in both clinical and policy decision making.
In my award address, I will be talking about the importance of keeping the focus on people in conducting applied research – and specifically about contextualizing care.
