The Quality of Life (QOL) Outcomes Research Group seeks to characterize the relationship between the many factors that affect heart patients and how those factors shape their quality of life. This research is led by Bradley Marino, MD, MPP, MSCE.
Features being looked at include the genetic, demographic, clinical, neuro-developmental, psychosocial and physical morbidity of children treated for congenital and acquired heart disease. Studying the relationships among these traits and children’s quality of life will allow clinicians to modify care for better long-term results.
