The MGH Primary Care Practice-Based Research Network has opportunities for HMS students interested in projects involving clinical epidemiology, health services research and implementations science. Depending on the student's interest and the status of ongoing projects, students will work with faculty in the Division of General Internal Medicine to develop a study question and answer it within the time allotted. Students will take advantage of a well-defined data base with over 200,000 patients seen in one of 20 affiliated primary care practices.

A Randomized Trial Comparing Approaches to Promote Informed Decisions about Cancer Screening in Older Adults (PRIMED study)
Role Description: The purpose of this trial is to compare the effectiveness of providing clinicians with (1) a standard registry of their 76-85 year old patients’ cancer screening status and (2) the registry plus intensive training in shared decision making skills. We will examine impact on patients’ reports of shared decision making for colorectal cancer screening, the percentage of patients receiving their preferred approach to screening, screening rates, and clinician confidence in shared decision making.

Promoting follow-up of abnormal cancer screening tests using population-basedsystems to support stepped care multilevel intervention
Role Description: We propose to develop, implement, evaluate and disseminate a health information technology-enabled, multi-level, stepped care intervention grounded in primary care to improve the follow-up of abnormal breast, cervical, colorectal and lung cancer screening results

American Heart Association
Precision Medicine in Ischemic Stroke and Atrial Fibrillation (PreMISe-AF)
Role Description: The major goals of this project are: 1) implement a clinical AF risk estimation tool in the EHR among acute stroke patients at Massachusetts General Hospital, 2) derive a polygenic risk score for AF and assess discrimination of cardioembolic stroke risk, and 3) pilot a polygenic risk assay for AF in stroke patients.

Multi-level Optimization of the Cervical Cancer Screening Process in Diverse Settings & Populations (METRICS)
Role Description: The goal of METRICs is to generate crucial information about the cervical screening process that will identify points and strategies for intervention to improve guideline adherence and reduce disparities. Three complementary projects will elucidate at what level disparities in screening process occur, programs and policies that influence screening adherence, and precision screening for subgroups at increased cancer risk.

Matching the right person to the right treatment: shared decision making for high cost elective procedures
Role Description: The aims of this proposal are to (1) integrate new performance measures to assess shared decision making for elective orthopaedic procedures, (2) explore how the data may be used to motivate practices to increase rates of informed, patient-centered decisions, and (3) examine the impact on high value care.
