We engage in a broad range of research activities that ultimately lead to:
- An improvement in the quality of life of seriously ill patients and the satisfaction with care of their families.
- For those at the end of life, an improvement in the quality of their experience and that of their families.
- Increased efficiency in our health care system.
- Increased clinical research capacity of our institution and of our partners.
