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

r future multi-site randomized controlled trials in patients receiving hospice care and their caregivers, which are lacking for many psychiatric interventions used in this population.

University of California, San Francisco Alexander K. Smith, M.D., MPH, is an assistant professor of medicine. Dr. Smith will conduct a study using a nationally representative survey linked with Medicare Data to describe the characteristics of elderly patients seen in the emergency department in the last 6 months of life and will use direct observation and survey methodology to examine communication about goals of care among a diverse group of seriously ill elders, their family caregivers, and emergency department providers.

"We are truly enthusiastic over the large number of qualified and promising investigators that have applied for the pilot project support grants and junior faculty career development awards over the past three years," said Dr. Diane E. Meier, Chair of the NPCRC's Scientific Advisory Board, Director of the Center to Advance Palliative Care, and the Hertzberg Palliative Care Institute at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. "Based on the progress and achievements of the current NPCRC and American Cancer Society grantees, we now look forward to opening more doors for additional investigators to advance the scientific field of palliative care."
