Health Decision Research  

The program Health Decision Research (HDR) was established in 2000 as part of the Center for the Evaluative Clinical Sciences at Dartmouth Medical School.

Our Mission

Health Decision Research's mission is to provide a scientifically rigorous and ethically sound basis for effective decision making in preventive, screening, diagnostic, treatment, clinical trial, and palliative care settings.

Led by Hilary Llewellyn-Thomas, Ph.D., the program focuses primarily on decisions by consumers and providers of health care, but is also concerned with the perspectives of organizations, agencies, and policy makers in health care.
