Karen R. Sepucha, Ph.D.

Karen is the director of the Health Decision Sciences Center in the General Medicine Division at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and an assistant professor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Her research and clinical interests involve developing and implementing tools and methods to improve the quality of significant medical decisions made by patients and clinicians. Dr. Sepucha was the medical editor for a series of five breast cancer patient decision aids (PtDAs) developed by the not-for-profit Informed Medical Decisions Foundation. The PtDAs have won seven media awards and Dr. Sepucha has led the dissemination of these programs to more than 80 academic and community cancer centers across the country. She is also responsible for efforts to promote shared decision making into primary and specialty care at MGH through patient decision aids and clinician skills training. Her recent research has focused on the development of instruments to measure the quality of decisions. The decision quality instruments have been used in national surveys of medical decisions, and a subset of the items have been adapted for use in the CAHPS primary care medical home patient experience survey. Dr. Sepucha has been active in local, national and international efforts to improve decision quality, including the International Patient Decision Aids Standards collaboration. She got her Ph.D. in Engineering-Economic Systems and Operations Research at Stanford University with a focus in decision sciences.
