Hello all! I am a postdoc research fellow in the Dept of Epi at Columbia University, and my clinical background is as a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner (still practicing). I am very interested in data quality and standardization for oncology-specific concepts/terms, and my dissertation partially focused on the challenges in data quality around cancer-related symptoms for children, adolescents and young adults receiving cancer treatment (am working on publishing the manuscript). My current research is focusing on opioid prescribing for post-operative pain in children/AYA with cancer.
I’m interested in getting more involved in EHR abstraction, specifically within the oncology working group @rimma @shilparatwani @Andrew @Michael and specifically around pediatric/AYA cancers. I look forward to hearing more, and was really excited to hear yesterday’s presentation and future directions!
