To advance the science of care for people facing the end-of-life transition across the life span (e.g., infants, children, adolescents, adults, and older adults). We will emphasize patient-centered, family-focused respectful death with planning for end-of-life care that is consistent with the patients’ and families’ values and priorities (e.g., awareness about ways people die and advance care planning) and expected death experiences (e.g., palliative care, approaching dying, and bereavement).
- Advance the science of care for people facing the end-of-life transition across the life span.
- Strengthen the ethical use of qualitative and quantitative (mixed methods) methodologies by Center investigators/affiliates and train novices regarding the ethical issues in end of life research and mixed methods measurement of biobehavioral (biological, behavioral, and experiential) variables, management of data, and analysis of data.
- Expand the capacity to conduct end-of-life research with informatics solutions that contribute to high integrity processes and efficient, valid, and reliable outcomes in institutional and community-based settings.
- Facilitate the dissemination of end-of-life research findings to the scientific and clinical communities and to the general public.
