Moral Uncertainty in Community Health (MUCH) Study 

Our goal is to learn from the clinical leadership of FQHCs and FQHC look-alikes about situations, patient cases, social issues, or policies that “keep you up at night.” Interviewees will be asked to share instances when they’ve asked themselves or others “What’s the right thing to do here?” or experienced barriers to “doing the right thing.” 

Interviews will inform the development of future collaborative projects that address these practice challenges. 

This interview study is directed by Johanna Crane, PhD, a medical anthropologist at Albany (NY) Medical College, in collaboration with The Hastings Center. Our research was approved by the Albany Medical College IRB. The project is funded by The Greenwall Foundation. The interviews are one component of a larger mixed-methods study of moral uncertainty in community health

Our study will involve 25-30 interviews with clinical providers (NPs, APRNs, DOs, MDs) who occupy clinical leadership positions within their workplaces. Participants will be asked to participate in one 60-minute qualitative interview (via Zoom or phone) and will be compensated with a $35 gift card. All interviews are confidential.
