​Palliative Care Research

UPMC Content 2

Because UPMC is affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences, the UPMC Palliative and Supportive Institute is able to conduct extensive research into how palliative and supportive care can affect patients and their families.

Our passion for learning more and helping others fuels our research, as we:

  • Examine how end-of-life decisions relate to the patient's physical status and emotional state.
  • Learn how families cope in times of stress and uncertainty.
  • Study how people respond to different approaches to care and communication.
