Multilevel Interventions in Health Care: Presentation by Richard Warnecke, PhD
Multilevel Interventions in Health Care: Building the Foundation for Future Research Goals
Linking Multilevel Approaches to Issues in Health Policy Lead author: Richard Warnecke, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago)
As health care reform is being considered and advanced, solutions being proposed for the delivery of health care begin with addressing access issues by reducing financial barriers. This paper uses breast cancer as a marker of health care delivery and analyzes how the view from communities facing health disparities provides insights for policy. The role of multilevel research in addressing gaps in our knowledge will also be addressed.
The research conference sponsored by the National Cancer Institute assembled health care researchers, clinicians, and administrators to discuss the importance of multilevel approaches to improving health care quality in the United States. It occurred over two days and was associated with the American Society for Preventive Oncology's (ASPO) annual meeting in March of 2011.
This presentation is one of 13 research papers. The conference offered platforms for participant discussion and engagement regarding the opportunities and challenges of multilevel intervention research.
