Improving surgical care through health services research
Health services research is the study of health behavior and disease dissemination and prevention from a biologic and behavioral perspective. It’s also the study of population health, which measures health outcomes of groups of individuals connected by sociodemographic status, geography or entity. Surgical health services researchers study the biopsychosocial underpinnings of surgical disease, measure surgical outcomes and test innovative approaches for improving surgical care.
