Our Current Projects

  • A pilot study on the effectiveness of JHPET for physician and  nonphysician learners
  • Evaluation of associations between learner demographics and post-training learner outcomes

The next phase of this research will be to evaluate the impact of the trainee’s improvements in self-efficacy, knowledge and communication skills on patient health outcomes.
