Putting Research into Practice: Communication and Advance Care Planning
September 6 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
With support from the Person-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) as part of their Eugene Washington Engagement Award for Capacity Building grant, C-TAC is convening this Forum in partnership with Honoring Choices Pacific Northwest to highlight the findings of threepioneering research studies on communication, ACP, and decision-making. These three studies are led by distinguished PCORI-funded academic investigators.
The purpose of this Forum is to place these person-centered, actionable 1800 PCORI studies in the hands of implementers – health system leaders, individual providers, payers, community and state coalitions, and advocacy groups – who can use the research findings to improve the delivery of care for patients living with advanced illness.
The following PCORI-funded investigators will present their research:
- Rebecca Sudore, MD, Professor in the Department of Medicine, University of California in San Francisco
- Randall Curtis, MD, Director of the Cambia Palliative Care Center of Excellence at the University of Washington in Seattle
- Larry Allen, MD, Professor of Medicine-Cardiology in the School of Medicine at the University of Colorado in Denver
