A couple of weeks ago Mark L. Graber and I sent out an email to ask for
your help with a short study designed to gain a better understanding of
how health care providers diagnose patients.
** THANKS SO MUCH TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE ALREADY PARTICIPATED! WE
APPRECIATE YOUR HELP AND REALLY VALUE (AND HAVE BENEFITED FROM) YOUR
THOUGHTFUL FEEDBACK ABOUT THIS RESEARCH SO FAR!!
We're excited about this research and expect that it will help us to
identify factors that may help to improve diagnosis - something we know
you all care about very much, as we do.
We would like to ask one more time if you could complete this brief
online study -- it takes most participants about 10-15 minutes and many
have reported that it is an interesting exercise (and not a waste of
time - something we know is really valuable for health care providers
like you!!). We are specifically looking for physicians, nurse
practitioners, and medical students. Here's the link to the study,
which you can complete online:
** WE WOULD ALSO GREATLY APPRECIATE IF YOU COULD ALSO FORWARD THIS EMAIL
INVITATION TO COLLEAGUES, RESIDENTS, STUDENTS, AND OTHERS WHO MAY BE
WILLING TO PARTICIPATE.
If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact
Linda M. Isbell, lisbell at psych.umass.edu, or Mark L. Graber,
mark.graber at improvediagnosis.org.
Many thanks for your help. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!
