Dr. Stalmeier's interests are in patient involvement and in Quality of Life. His work in patient involvement is about patient decision aids, shared decision making, patient-doctor communication, patient preferences, human decision making, and human information processing. His work in Quality of life focusses on utility assessment and irrational behavior.
HIs research on shared decision making has resulted in many publications dealing with the development and evaluation of decision aids, the estimation of numeric risks for prognosis and side-effects of treatments, and preference assessment. Studies involved patients with different types of cancer, including larynx, (advanced) breast, colorectal and prostate cancer.
