Dr. Michele Maiers is the Executive Director of Research and Innovation and Professor in the Center for Healthcare Innovation and Policy at Northwestern Health Sciences University.
She also serves as Vice President on the Council of Delegates for the American Chiropractic Association, and is a Council Member of the World Federation of Chiropractic.
Dr. Maier's professional goal is to facilitate the pragmatic use of research to both inform clinical practice and shape public health policy. Her research has focused on clinical trials that answer practical questions, including:
- Are patient outcomes improved with co-management by different provider types?
- Is short term treatment or long term management a better approach for chronic musculoskeletal conditions?
- What aspects of care matter most to patients?
It is essential that the information gained in these and other studies is translated into knowledge that improves patient care, policy guidelines, access and reimbursement.
When not at work, she enjoys traveling, reading, running, and baking pies.
Dr. Maiers recently published an article titled "Our future in the hands of Millennials" in the Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association.
We discuss her journey through chiropractic, her research, and her vision of the future based on her experience with the upcoming generation of chiropractors.
