Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD

Professor, Department of Pediatrics

Dr. Cox’s research program, PROKids, leverages the voices of children and families to deliver safer, higher quality pediatric care. With funding from NIH, AHRQ and PCORI, her portfolio of work includes multiple successful pragmatic trials conducted within pediatric care systems as well as the development, validation and assessment of patient-centered outcomes. Some highlights of her work include her successful redesign of family-centered rounds in children’s hospitals, which increased patient safety and family engagement as well as a current study engaging children with type 1 diabetes and their parents to tailor diabetes self-management resources to the unique needs of each child and family.
