Year-in-Review at VSSL
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
There’s no way around it: this has been a challenging year on many fronts, complicating the ability to focus on topics that would otherwise be top of mind. Nonetheless, the turn toward a new academic year also creates a unique opportunity to reflect on the prior one. We’ve tried to do that in our 2019-2020 year-in-review report.
We’ve organized the content below by our Lab focus areas: policy analysis; program evaluation; implementation strategy; and training & education. In each section, we provide a sampling of the work done in each area and refer those interested in learning more to our website. We invite those interested in learning more to visit the main lab webpage.
We would like to thank the leadership and staff of the UW Medicine Center for Scholarship in Patient Care Quality and Safety, the Division of General Internal Medicine, and the Department of Medicine for their guidance and sponsorship. It’s not hyperbole to say that whatever the Lab has accomplished this year was possible because of their support.
There’s always more work to be done in the areas of value and systems science. We welcome anyone interested in learning more about the Lab and/or joining in its work to reach out.
