CMVRS Director Frank Straub becomes a member of the University of Michigan’s Medical School’s Acute Care Research Unit

Dr. Frank Straub, Director of the Center for Mass Violence Response Studies, recently became a member of the University of Michigan’s Medical School’s Acute Care Research Unit. ACRU’s research focuses on the continuum of acute care delivery in the United States which includes: pre-hospital, emergency, inpatient, and ambulatory care. Multidisciplinary, policy-relevant, health services research of acute-care utilization, quality, effectiveness, and outcomes requires consideration of how the healthcare delivery dynamics within one setting impact the care delivered in subsequent settings.

Through various completed, ongoing, and future projects the ACUTE Care Research Unit (ACRU) applies quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and community-based participatory research to study intra and inter-setting dynamics and their impact on Access, Costs, Utilization, Transitions, and Effectiveness [ACUTE] Care.
