ASU-Mayo Seed Grant

I am very pleased to announce that a group of wonderful colleagues at ASU and Mayo Clinic and myself have received a seed grant in the amount of $50,000 to conduct a research project entitled “Patient-Centered Exploration and Innovation to Understand and Ease the Burden of Dialysis.” The project will provide initial mixed-methods (survey, interview, and ethnographic observations) of the burden of work that dialysis patients with severe kidney disease face in managing their healthcare and the specific practices through which these patients manage the work of being a dialysis patient. We will use this initial research to develop a larger project in the future, so stay tuned. The research team includes Kasey Boehmer, Victor Montori, and Bjoerg Thorsteindottir from the Mayo Clinic Knowledge and Evaluation Research Unit; Samantha Whitman from the ASU College of Health Solutions; Erik Johnston from the ASU School for the Future of Innovation in Society; and myself.
