Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Patient self-advocacy is important, and although a maximizing preference may be advantageous in many situations, new research led by the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center shows that, in the case of long-term surveillance of treated, low-risk thyroid cancer, patient who are "maximizers" consume more health care resources — such as doctor visits and diagnostic imaging tests — which drive up costs without a clear improvement in outcomes.

Research on Firearm Injuries to U.S. Children Gets 30 Times Less Funding Per Death Than Other Causes

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Firearm injuries kill 2,500 American children each year. But the nation spends far less on studying what led to these injuries, and what might prevent and treat them, than it spends on other causes of death in children. In fact, on a per-death basis, funding for pediatric firearm research is 30 times lower than it would have to be to keep pace with research on other child health threats.
