$1.8 million awarded for palliative care research to improve care of seriously ill patients
Date:6/2/2010

on to palliative treatment choices.

  • University of Pittsburgh - Yael Schenker, M.D., who will begin her position as assistant professor of medicine in the division of general internal medicine at the University of Pittsburgh in August, 2010, will characterize and compare the quality of communication about end-of-life issues with seriously ill African American and Caucasian patients. Dr. Schenker will use direct observation and stimulated recall interviews to identify physician communication behaviors that are consistent or inconsistent with patient preferences.

  • University of California, Los Angeles - Anne Walling, M.D., Ph.Dc., an assistant professor of medicine (beginning in July 2010), will study transplant patients as a model for patients with a realistic hope for cure. She will investigate how consideration of organ transplantation affects medical care received, and using qualitative methods, examine barriers and facilitators to patient-physician communication around advance care planning in this population.

  • Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School - Alexi Wright, M.D., an instructor in medicine at Harvard Medical School and an attending physician in medical oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute focuses her research on patient-oncologist communication, the formation of treatment preferences, and variations in practice patterns. Through her research she hopes to develop an evidence base to guide advanced cancer patients' decision-making in areas where there are currently limited data, e.g., the use of palliative chemotherapy in advanced, platinum-refractory ovarian cancer.
