Homecoming 2023: Michele Maiers
This axiom aptly characterizes how many see research as it relates to health care delivery. My professional goal is to facilitate the pragmatic use of research to both inform clinical practice and shape public health policy. My research has focused on clinical trials that answer practical questions, including, are patient outcomes improved with co-management by different provider types? Is short-term treatment or long-term management a better approach for chronic musculoskeletal conditions? What aspects of care matter most to patients? It is essential that the information gained in these, and other studies are translated into knowledge that improves patient care, policy guidelines, access, and reimbursement.
I am excited about my work because I believe in the capacity for integrative and complementary professions to be a positive force in improving the landscape of health care. When not at work, I enjoy traveling, reading, running, and baking pies.
