Dr. Iwashyna's research focuses on the long-term health impacts of acute disruptive events, blending both clinical and social science perspectives. His recent work has examined the extent to which acute illnesses cause disruptions in the lives of patients and their families, and how social, organizational, and family factors may moderate these adverse consequences. Methodologically, he combines the traditional tools of demographic and health services research with emerging techniques in network analysis and longitudinal data analysis.
