He is also part of the Survey Research Center at the Institute for Social Research and the Center for Clinical Management Research at the Ann Arbor VA Health Services Research & Development Center of Excellence. Dr. Iwashyna’s research interests are, broadly, in critical care organization and outcomes. Most recently, he has been examining the population-health impact and long-term outcomes of severe sepsis. His current research seeks to understand the ways in which severe sepsis fundamentally alters survivors’ lives, and the extent to which differences in acute care can lead to enduring differences in disability and health care needs after sepsis.
