Curriculum Vitae

Research

Margaret Holmes-Rovner’s research has contributed substantially to establishing the field of patient-provider shared decision-making in health care. Her research focuses on descriptive and prescriptive studies of patient and provider decision-making.

Her other on-going scholarship is in the areas of health literacy, chronic disease management, and use of the electronic medical record (EMR) to facilitate patient participation in decision-making. She has developed decision support tools, and decision aid evaluation measures that are widely used nationally and internationally. As the field has developed, she has been a key player in a movement to establish international standards for educational materials designed to support informed, shared patient decision-making by helping to establish the International Patient Decision Aid Standards (IPDAS).
