For the last twelve years my research focus has been on various areas of end-of-life healthcare including physician-assisted death. My current areas of interest include end-of-life healthcare quality, access, policy reform, and expanded options for those facing end-of-life choices. I am also interested in the family caregiver, hospice and palliative care, and the aging population.
