Electronic Health Records (EHRs) contain a wealth of information about patient care if you just know where to look.
College of Nursing Assistant Professor Jia-Wen Guo will use a new $287,000 grant from the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) to dig into EHR data for clues about cancer pain.
Guo's K01 award--a baseline classification of grants that help researchers establish and build on their work--is a three-year project aimed at reducing inadequately controlled cancer pain. Guo's short-term goals include: examining the availability and quality of EHR data, developing a research data repository for cancer pain research (R2CancerPain) with preprocessed EHR data; and characterizing distinct pain trajectories informed by the Dynamic Symptoms Model (DSM).
