Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD is a tenured Associate Professor in Pediatrics and Population Health Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research leverages the voices of children and families to deliver safer, higher quality pediatric care. For example, her AHRQ-funded trial successfully redesigned family-centered rounds in children’s hospitals to increase patient safety and family engagement. She has served as an advisor on PCORI’s Improving Health Care Systems panel and has received multiple PCORI contracts. Currently, in a PCORI-funded trial, she is evaluating the effectiveness of tailoring type 1 diabetes self-management resources to the unique needs of each child and family.
Dr. Cox also serves on the Steering Committee for the University of Wisconsin’s Institute for Clinical and Translational Research’s (CTSA) Community and Academic Partnerships Core. In PEPR, Dr. Cox co-leads efforts to understand the clinical utility and validity of the PROMIS Pediatric Family Relationships measure for children with chronic illnesses such as asthma, type 1 diabetes, and sickle cell disease.
