I-HDS Seminar Series

I-HDS (Institute for Healthcare Delivery Science) invites you to join its Seminar Series, Wednesday, March 15th at 12:00pm via Zoom Conferencing.

Our guest speaker will be Patricia D. Franklin, MD, Professor/Co-Director, Northwestern University


Dr. Patricia Franklin is a physician-scientist and leader who has served as Professor in the Department of Medical Social Sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine since January 2019.  She completed her medical training and Preventive Medicine residency at the University of Rochester School of Medicine. Her fellowship emphasized real-world quality and outcomes analysis in chronic care. During her fellowship she completed an MBA/MPH program laying the foundation for a career leading healthcare delivery improvement and conducting patient-centered outcomes research. From 2011-2022, she served as Principal Investigator of FORCE-TJR, an AHRQ-funded P50 for comparative effectiveness research in total joint replacement (TJR) outcomes. Her research has informed CMS, FDA, NQF, and international efforts to define clinical practice and reimbursement guidelines for total joint replacement. Finally, she serves as MPI of a K12 program training junior faculty from across Chicago on the principles of conducting embedded research and fostering the acceleration of learning health systems. 



Over 1.2 million people elect total joint replacement (TJR) surgery annually with the primary goals of reducing knee and hip pain and improving mobility. This PCORI-funded multi-site study enrolled 5700 patients to evaluate the use of a co-designed decision report that included predictions of likely post-operative pain and functional ability to support decisions for TJR. The report content, format, and implementation strategies will be discussed, as well as preliminary data from a mixed-methods evaluation of use.


Learning Objectives:

By the end of the presentation the audience will understand:

1. Understand how patient-reported outcome measures for knee and hip osteoarthritis can inform decisions for elective TJR surgery.

2. Understand patient preferred report content and design, and assessment of report use.

3. Understand factors associated with decision quality (confidence) in adults considering TJR.
