Aortic Dissection Collaborative for Patient-Centered Research

Patients with aortic dissection face dramatically different options for care without strong evidence for the long-term consequences of those options at an individual level. What is absent in the decision-making process in this complex landscape is the patient’s voice. Providing opportunities for patient involvement will help ensure the patient voice is well represented in research related to aortic dissection. 

On April 7, 2021, we shared results of interviews completed with members of the aortic dissection community about the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on their healthcare.
