As an educational psychologist with 14 years of professional experience in health economic and outcomes research, Amy Grizzle’s clinical and scholarly expertise in real-world assessment, intervention, and outcomes evaluation contributes significantly to the interdisciplinary scope of her research. She is a principal analyst on recent decision analysis studies, including the comparison of diagnostics used in the treatment of late-stage non-small cell lung cancer patients, and the comparison of immunosuppressants in kidney transplant recipients. Overall, her research focuses on understanding and improving evidence-based medical decision-making informed by shared decision making , treatment heterogeneity, comparative effectiveness research, real-world evidence, consumer knowledge of medication safety, and cost-effectiveness. Since 2009, she also designed and taught numerous health economic and outcomes research (HEOR) training programs for medical professionals and, for several years, a year-round weekly seminar on research methods, data analysis, and statistics to HOPE Center post-doctoral fellows and medical residents.
