The Office of End-of-Life and Palliative Care Research (OEPCR) coordinates and supports ongoing NINR and NIH research efforts in end-of-life and palliative care (EOL PC) science, including:
- Stimulation of end-of-life and palliative care research initiatives;
- Creation of opportunities for collaborative activities;
- Facilitation of interdisciplinary EOL PC science; and,
- Identify opportunities for science to inform policy and practice.
A major program priority is to coordinate the development, implementation and evaluation of end-of-life and palliative care research in direct collaboration with other NIH Institutes and Centers, federal research agencies and outside constituencies.
