Conceptual Schematic

THE THREE MOST SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT DEFINE YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM:
Can we develop sustainable and scalable models of palliative care to reduce suffering and improve outcomes for individuals living with serious cardiopulmonary illness?

Can we disseminate primary (or generalist) palliative care principles and practices to non-palliative care specialists in order to upstream palliative care for patients with serious cardiopulmonary illness?

Can we predict and identify unmet palliative needs among patients with serious illness using clinical, administrative, and patient-reported data?

FIVE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR AREAS OF INTEREST:
Palliative and supportive care, Patient-reported outcomes, Cardiopulmonary illness (e.g., heart failure, cystic fibrosis), Comparative effectiveness research, Intervention design

TECHNIQUES, MODELS, METHODS, ANALYTIC APPROACHES, ETC:

Clinical trials
Patient-reported outcomes assessment
Systematic review and meta-analysis
Qualitative and mixed-methods research
Stakeholder engagement
