This session provided an overview of PCORI’s significant investments in stakeholder-driven, patient-centered, comparative effectiveness research aimed at reducing the illness burden experienced by patients with advanced illnesses and their caregivers. The session also highlighted recent findings from two PCORI-funded clinical trials, the first focused on facilitating discussions about the goals of care and the second on delivery of palliative care services for patients with Parkinson’s disease.
