Effect of a Medical-Legal Partnership on Patient Outcomes
This project would involve collecting de-identified data from the patients who have used the medical-legal partnership (MLP) that I founded at a free clinic in St. Louis City. The goal of an MLP is to provide comprehensive health care that addresses patients' medical and social needs at one institution. We will analyze the effect that MLP utilization has had on this patient population's reported quality of life, health status, and self-efficacy.
