Using Research Thinking to Address Health Policy Problems
IHPI Research Seminar Series
Healthcare and public health are coming together in increasingly complex ways, yet health services research provides a set of tools to solve problems at the interface, yet these are often not continued to belong to one or the other domain. Dr. Nicole Lurie, Former Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, US Department of Health and Human Services, will discuss how to apply research thinking to policy and operational challenges. She will provide a few examples drawn from her career experience as a springboard for a larger audience discussion about how to move from research to getting things done. The IHPI Research Seminar Series is a lecture-based program designed to share innovative health services research topics, studies, and programs, with clinicians, faculty, research staff, and students from a variety of disciplines. Reception and networking to immediately follow the presentation.
