The proliferation of biomedical knowledge and new technologies has brought enormous gains for millions of Americans. Yet, many of these advances raise important questions about their wise and equitable use. CAE staff are experienced in conducting research to better understand the clinical, psychological, organizational, cross-cultural, and ethical complexities associated with advances in medical knowledge and technology. Based on that research, CAE designs educational programs and other interventions aimed at improving clinical practice, health care decision-making, and, ultimately, patient and family well-being.
