Quality-of-Life Grant Integrates Research and Clinical Care

Cynthia Gerhardt, PhD, Center for Biobehavioral Health, has received a 2-year, $154,000 grant from the National Palliative Care Research Center to examine quality of life in families of children with severe health conditions or illness.

The project will document the quality of life and symptoms experienced by these children as well as identifying symptom clusters and common mechanisms. The goal is to help inform appropriate care in order to relieve suffering and improve symptom management to reduce caregiver burden.

This is one example of how research continues to integrate with clinical care at Nationwide Children’s.
