AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What shapes perceptions of whether the healthcare system takes patient concerns seriously and how do they affect patient health?

Patients, like many of the 11.2% of Americans with chronic pain, can feel that providers do not take their health concerns seriously. The goals of this research are: 1. identify factors (e.g., race, gender, SES) that affect perceptions of how seriously the healthcare system takes the concerns of patients across a variety of conditions (e.g., fibromyalgia, lupus) and, 2. test how these perceptions affect patient health outcomes (e.g., stress, quality of life, healthcare avoidance, adherence).

The remaining questions allow you to outline in more detail the information needed to address your research question. The series of questions allow up to five entries. If you have more than five entries, please try to prioritize them and enter the remainder in the final field. When done, click Submit at the bottom. Yes
