Vascular Surgery

Project Summary:

The project aims to compare a question prompt list (QPL) intervention to usual care in five U.S. cities: Madison, WI; Boston, MA; Newark, NJ; San Francisco, CA; and Portland, OR. The goal of this study is to close the gap between what surgeons know and what patients understand by empowering patients and family members to ask questions about how high risk surgery can affect people like them.
