Improving Outcomes Following Injury and Illness

Our research group focuses on projects that have the potential to improve function and quality of life and reduce disability following injury or illness. These projects include research on cognitive, behavioral, psychological and health care system factors that affect outcomes following injury.

We strive to improve function and quality of life after such events as amputation, chronic disease, chronic pain, musculoskeletal injury and orthopaedic injury. Our team is particularly interested in developing assessment and treatment approaches that:

  • Build resilience and self-management skills
  • Use risk stratification to match patients with appropriate treatment
  • Increase patient engagement

We closely collaborate with partners in the Department of Health Policy and Management and the Major Extremity Trauma Research Consortium in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, as well as the departments of orthopaedics, psychiatry, and anesthesiology and critical care medicine in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
