The Pediatric Interest Group provides a forum for child health researchers to share ideas, collaborate and provide resources to one another, related to any aspect of medical decision making. The group aims to consider the unique challenges decision science researchers (regardless of focus or methods) face in adapting concepts developed in adult medicine to the pediatric context, presenting results to non-pediatric audiences and explaining decision research methods to pediatric audiences. We welcome any member who has an interest in research focused on children’s health and healthcare.


SMDM Committees and Interest Groups will be holding meetings during breakfast and lunch. Please see the schedule below. A mission statement or agenda for these groups may be found under each daily tab during the appropriate time slot.

All interested attendees are encouraged to join a committee or interest group during these times.   

Groups meeting during lunch, lunch is not provided. We ask that participants use the first 1/2 hour of the break to have their lunch for which the hotel offers many options, then join the group for the last hour of the break for discussions.
