Research Bio

RESEARCH INTERESTS: Dr. Veazie's primary interests are the decision behavior of health care providers and patients, the consequent health outcomes, and the influence of social and organizational systems on such behavior and outcomes. He is specifically interested in the structuring and use of information by patients and providers, the impact of psychological disposition and states on health care decisions, the decision strategies of healthcare providers in the management of patients with chronic illnesses, the physician/patient interaction, and how physician decision processes can lead to medical errors.

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES: Dr. Veazie is presently studying (1) physician use of racial information in diagnosis and treatment decisions, and (2) the effect on patient risk perceptions of various graphical representations of very low level risks.
