    The Epidemiology of Diagnostic Error in Emergency Care in the United States and the Association with Patient Outcomes and Healthcare Costs

  2. 1R56AG075017-01A1 (Laura G. Burke. MD) Sep 30, 2022 - Aug 31, 2024
    NIH/NIA
    A National Analysis of Observation Care Among Medicare Beneficiaries with Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias
    Role Description: Older adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) go the emergency department (ED) and the hospital more often than those without dementia. In recent years, older adults who go to the ED have increasingly been placed in observation status, rather than discharged home or admitted to the hospital. This project will examine how the use of observation care has changed in recent years for people with ADRD, whether these changes have been associated with worse health outcomes, and how doctors can better assess patients with ADRD for risk of faring poorly during or after an observation stay.
    Role: Principal Investigator

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
