Research in Palliative and End-of-Life Communication and Training Center

The mission of the Research in Palliative and End-of-Life Communication and Training (RESPECT) Center is to build a collaborative, interdisciplinary scientific community of researchers and clinicians to work together to advance the science of communication in palliative and end-of-life care across the lifespan.

The goals of the Center are to:

  • Accelerate the development of innovative descriptive and intervention research trials relevant to communication and decision-making in children, adolescents, adults, and elders with serious and/or life-threatening illness
  • Develop new community partnerships for translational science to enhance palliative and end-of-life care research and practice
  • Create mentorship opportunities for developing scholars who will become the next generation of productive, passionate palliative and end-of-life care researchers
