Palliative Care

We are researching how new models of high-quality palliative care can become widely adopted wherever it’s best for the patient and their families.

What We're Doing

We are researching how high-quality palliative care can become widely adopted wherever it’s best for the patient and their families. In collaboration with the California State University Institute for Palliative Care, the Institute is cohosting an inaugural national conference for academic faculty interested in advancing palliative education and research with the goal of improving care and quality of life for the country’s most chronically ill patients.
