Biography:
Albert Mulley is director of the Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science and professor of medicine at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. Before joining the Dartmouth Center, He spent 35 years on the Harvard faculty and the staff of Massachusetts General Hospital where he was the founding chief of the General Medicine Division and director of the Medical Practices Evaluation Center. He was a founding director of the Foundation for Informed Medical Decision Making and continues to serve as senior clinical advisor. His research focuses on the use of decision theory and outcomes research to distinguish between warranted and unwarranted variations in clinical practice. This work led to development of research instruments and approaches, including shared decision-making programs, to support clinicians and patients in their decisionmaking roles and to catalyze both learning collaborative and clinical trials. These approaches have shown decreasing utilization of high cost medical and surgical interventions while improving measures of decision quality, including stronger associations between patients’ personal preferences for health outcomes and the care they receive. He has also served as a consultant and visiting professor to government agencies, health care organizations and academic medical centers in North America, Europe and Asia. In 2011, he was named the first international visiting fellow at the King’s Fund in London and appointed international consultant to the Chinese Hospital Association. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Sciences.
