Emily Godfrey, MD, MPH, is an Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Washington, where she practices full-spectrum family medicine and conducts research related to women’s health. Her long-term research goal is to improve sexual and reproductive health care provided to patients with complex medical conditions, including women with cystic fibrosis (CF). She has a strong background in clinical research and in the development of national contraceptive guidelines for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). More recently, she developed her skill set to include patient-engaged research. She first learned about patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) through the 2015 North American Primary Care Research Group’s (NAPCRG) PCORI-funded Patient and Clinician Engagement (PaCE) Program. Shortly thereafter, she received Pipeline to Proposal (P2P) funding and created the Cystic Fibrosis Reproductive and Sexual Health Collaborative (CFReSHC). As a long-time family physician and reproductive health specialist, Godfrey brings decades of patient-centered clinical skills to CFReSHC and sensitivity to discussions with patients about sexual health. The P2P award has provided her and other CFReSHC members with critical guidance and technical assistance, ensuring success with this project. She remains active in the NAPCRG PaCE Council, which serves as an important resource to enhance and maintain her skills in teaching and leading others in PCOR.

Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
