Available: 07/21/17, Expires: 09/03/20

Students may partake in any of my ongoing studies including 1) a decision aid on mammography screening for older women; 2) a decision aid on breast cancer treatment for older women; 3) Breast cancer risk assessment for women in their 40s in primary care; and 4) Developing and testing scripts for discussing stopping cancer screening and long-term prognosis with older adults. Students may help with study design, recruiting patients, interviewing patients, data analyses, data interpretation, and/or manuscript preparation.

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.
