Aasim Padela, MD, MSc, Appointed to National Research Institute’s Advisory Panel

Milwaukee, Sept. 7, 2022Aasim Padela, MD, MSc, Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) professor of emergency medicine, bioethics, and medical humanities, has been appointed by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) as a member of its Advisory Panel on Healthcare Delivery and Disparities Research for a three-year term.

Padela will join other members of the panel in applying his experience and expertise to helping PCORI refine and prioritize the research it funds. He will also ensure that the research PCORI supports centers on the outcomes that matter to patients and other healthcare decision makers. PCORI is an independent, nonprofit organization authorized by Congress to fund research that will provide patients, their caregivers and clinicians with the evidence-based information needed to make better-informed healthcare decisions.

Padela was selected on the basis of his experience, expertise and ability to contribute to the panel’s mission. Panel members represent a broad range of healthcare stakeholder groups and perspectives, including patients, family caregivers, clinicians, drug and device makers and researchers, among others.

At MCW, Padela’s patient-centered research focuses on improving health and health care through better accommodating religious values. He is an internationally recognized thought and research leader, in the fields of Muslim health and healthcare disparity research, and of Islamic bioethics.

“I am drawn to patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) because it offers frameworks and tools by which to give voice to patient experiences and values in conducting and assessing health research, and because it provides approaches to deeply involve multiple stakeholders in the program design, conduct, and implementation,” Padela said.

More information about the Advisory Panel on Healthcare Delivery and Disparities Research, including its scope of work and a list of all members, is available on the PCORI website.
