Webinar: Medically Complex Care
The Case for Patient Activation: Research Findings & Real World Examples

The California Quality Collaborative (CQC) invites you to the next webinar in its “Medically Complex Care” webinar series with Judith Hibbard, PhD, MPH, lead author of the Patient Activation Measure (PAM). Currently used by researchers and practitioners internationally, the PAM measures an individual’s knowledge and skill for self-management.

Dr. Hibbard received her masters degree in Public Health from University of California, Los Angeles and her doctoral degree from the School of Public Health at University of California, Berkeley. Over the last 28 years, she has focused her research on consumer choices and behavior in health care. She has a particular interest in testing approaches that give consumers and patients more knowledge and control over their health and health care.
