In the face of uncertainty how can we best optimize and translate the most effective solutions into practice for patients/families, providers, and policy makers  that also allows for engagement in the process?    I am a translational nurse scientist that works at the intersection of personalized modeling and quality care delivery within the domains of predictive analytics, precision health, economics, and health/regulatory policy.
