Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Health care
  • Internal medicine
  • Law

His primary areas of study are Health care, Public health, Randomized controlled trial, MEDLINE and Gerontology. His Health care research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Workforce, Nursing, Medical emergency, Information Dissemination and Quality management. In his research, Payment and Life support is intimately related to Family medicine, which falls under the overarching field of Public health.

His Randomized controlled trial study also includes

  • Abstinence which connect with Smoking cessation,
  • Clinical trial that connect with fields like Demography and Cost–benefit analysis,
  • Patient participation, Surgery and Intensive care medicine most often made with reference to Psychological intervention. As a part of the same scientific family, David A. Asch mostly works in the field of MEDLINE, focusing on Data collection and, on occasion, Operations research, Mean and predicted response, Survey methodology and Response bias. His studies in Operations research integrate themes in fields like Research design and Response rate.

His most cited work include:

  • Response rates to mail surveys published in medical journals. (1920 citations)
  • Response rates to mail surveys published in medical journals. (1920 citations)
  • A randomized, controlled trial of financial incentives for smoking cessation. (610 citations)
