$1.5 million awarded for palliative care research to improve care of seriously ill patients
Date:5/18/2009

unding from federal agencies, which have supported some research in palliative care, but for whom it is not a priority area. Pilot data results are typically needed before a federal agency will consider funding a research project. "It is encouraging to see the high caliber and innovative applications being submitted by professionals interested in conducting research in palliative care," said Ronit Elk, Ph.D., cancer control and prevention research program director in the extramural grants of the American Cancer Society. "This request for application (RFA) provides clinicians and researchers an opportunity to answer important questions they had long wanted to investigate, but without this unique funding opportunity had been unable to."

"The American Cancer Society, in its initiative with the NPCRC, is making significant contributions towards reducing suffering caused by cancer and other serious illnesses," said Otis W. Brawley, M.D., chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society. "We strongly encourage other disease-specific organizations to follow suit and designate research dollars to further support research scientists who will advance the field of palliative care."

Harvard Medical School - Jennifer W. Mack, M.D., MPH, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute /Children's Hospital Boston, will examine the interplay between hope, prognosis communication, and end-of-life decision-making in the pediatric oncology setting to find ways to improve how physicians communicate prognosis and support parents' hopes for their child's end-of-life period. Ultimately, this work will help parents of children with advanced cancer make meaningful, value-driven decisions for their children's lives and care.
