Michelle Dannenberg is a health services researcher working to understand and enhance patient-provider communication, facilitate shared decision-making, and increase patient and caregiver engagement. Her current projects include developing a measure of effective goal setting during clinical encounters, developing a measure of physician attitudes about patient communication tools called decision aids, and researching the feasibility of electronic decision aid implementation into practice. Dannenberg is also the project coordinator for Open Recordings, a group researching and promoting the use of recording clinic visits for patient use. She has a broad interest in health services research and implementation science to improve patient care.
