Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD, Consulting On Dr. Safdar’s PCORI-funded Research On Healthcare-Associated Infections

Dr. Elizabeth Cox will consult on new research on healthcare-associated infections (HAI), funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Led by Dr. Nasia Safdar, Associate Chief of Staff for Research at the William S. Middleton VA Medical Center and Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine, the project will integrate patient perspectives to improve research on the prevention and treatment of HAIs. Along with Dr. Betty Chewning, Professor in the UW School of Pharmacy, Dr. Cox will provide expertise in stakeholder engagement and patient-centered outcomes research needed to create and sustain a blended stakeholder advisory panel—including patients and their families—who will participate in setting the agenda for future HAI research.
