Dr. Brusseau's PEDSnet project is titled, "Developing a tool for ongoing, real time, stakeholder-specific outcomes analysis and visualization", this project will be explored through the following aims:
- Assess stakeholders’ outcomes of interest and develop uniform definitions and their relative weighting for interventions under consideration.
- Develop a data visualization and analysis tool, with output customizable by end users, that can present the collected outcomes data and reflect differential endpoint weighting by stakeholder group.
- Utilize this tool to compare outcomes data (specifically comfort scale?) in patients undergoing arthroscopic meniscus and non-ACL knee surgery with and without an ambulatory nerve block catheter.
