Kendra's Responsibilities

As the liaison for the Evidence-based Cancer Imaging Program, I serve as a project manager for the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA) Project. Part of the PAMA mandate requires establishing appropriate use criteria (AUC) for advanced diagnostic imaging services, and MSK has been charged with endorsing, modifying, or developing these AUCs for priority clinical areas that engage with our strengths as a cancer center.

I coordinate the MSK Library's role in supporting this project, and as part of AUC content development, I work with our Imaging Disease Management Teams to develop clinical condition search strategies, produce evidentiary reviews, and identify relevant published research as evidence.

Kendra's Office Hours

Available 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday - Friday.

Please call 646.823.6143 or email to schedule an appointment for a research consultation, search strategy guidance, or collaborative projects.
