“QUANTIFYING HUMAN PERFORMANCE TO OPTIMIZE PATIENT OUTCOMES” Workshop
Mark your calendars now for the workshop “QUANTIFYING HUMAN PERFORMANCE TO OPTIMIZE PATIENT OUTCOMES” (September 9th, 2015 | Bridge@USC) This program is a joint effort of the National Cancer Institute’s Center for Strategic Initiatives and the Department of Defense’s Rapid Response Technology Office. It is aimed at improving the lives of cancer patients undergoing treatment and the successful mission completion/survival of warfighters. Both the patient and the warfighter suffer from treatment/duty-induced fatigue that impairs their ability to survive/perform. While the sources of the fatigue might be different, the measurement approaches might be similar. The goal of this workshop is to bring together intellectual competencies from around USC and our collaborating institutions to frame the problem and look at paths for solutions that can effect outcomes for patients undergoing treatment.
