How do I meaningfully incorporate stakeholders into my research?

Virtual Scientific Seminar: 4-5pm

Speaker: Dr. Karen Coleman studies the behavioral, social, and environmental determinants of success after weight loss surgery. An additional focus of her research is on interventions in primary care settings for adult depression. Dr. Coleman’s main areas of interest are health equity and the study of factors at the level of the patient, the provider, and the system that lead to successful interventions for physical and emotional wellness. Dr. Coleman directs one of the largest weight loss registries in the United States that is used for both patient care and research. She also directs a population management registry for the Kaiser Permanente Southern California depression care management program. She has a half-time appointment in Kaiser Permanente Southern California Clinical Operations, where she serves on the regional leadership teams for bariatric surgery and depression care.

Do clinical prediction models perpetuate health disparities? Assessment of racial and ethnic disparities in suicide prediction models.

Virtual Scientific Seminar: 4-5pm

Speaker: Yates Coley, PhD is an assistant investigator biostatistician at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute. Her statistical research focuses on the development and implementation of clinical predictions models that are accurate, actionable, and equitable. She has collaborations in mental health, cancer, bariatric surgery, aging, and health services.  

Summary

Clinical prediction models are frequently estimated using health records data, which reflect inequities in health care access, quality, and outcomes based on race, sexual orientation, gender identity, immigration status, and other identities.  Presuming that historical treatment patterns reflect clinical need can perpetuate these inequities. This talk will examine racial and ethnic disparities in the performance of suicide risk prediction models, a context which illustrates several challenges of applying prediction models across racial and ethnic groups. We will demonstrate how to evaluate potential disparities in the performance and impact of clinical prediction models.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
