Angie Fagerlin, Ph.D., is a Professor and Chair in the Department of Population Health Sciences at the University of Utah and a Research Scientist at the Salt Lake City VA. She is the current President of the Society of Medical Decision Making.
Dr. Fagerlin’s training is in experimental psychology, primarily in the areas of cognitive and social psychology. Her research focuses on testing methods for communicating medical data to patients and providers (e.g., the risks and benefits of cancer treatment) and the development and testing of decision support interventions. Her recent work is testing the impact of patient decision aids on patient-physician communication. Additionally, she is testing multiple methods for communicating about genetic testing and infectious diseases (e.g., the Zika virus, Ebola, influenza). Her research has been funded by NCI, NIH, VA, PCORI, and the European Union.
