Baptist Standard: Baylor professor creates improved health care analysis tool

July 16, 2018
For anyone who has ever taken a survey after a medical appointment and wondered whether the effort was worthwhile, the answer is probably "No," says researcher Keith Sanford, Ph.D., professor of psychology and neuroscience in Baylor's College of Arts & Sciences. He found that existing surveys to assess doctor-patient relationships are “highly problematic” and do not provide useful information. But Sanford — a scholar of psychometrics has created a new tool to measure patient experience during consultations, and study findings suggest it works better than others. The research was published in the journal Psychological Assessment. (This story was pitched nationally by Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications. She covers psychology research and faculty.)
