A study by UT’s College of Nursing seeks to understand if a new approach to pediatric end-of-life care can improve the quality of life for children with serious illness.
Our project will provide the much needed higher level evidence by conducting a sophisticated and methodologically rigorous analysis of administrative data.
Associate Professor Lisa C. Lindley has received a four-year award of $1.5 million from the National Institutes of Health National Institute of Nursing Research for her project “Effectiveness of Concurrent Care to Improve Pediatric and Family Outcomes at End of Life.” The study will investigate the impact of concurrent hospice care compared to standard hospice care in improving continuity and quality of pediatric end of life. Our project will provide the much needed higher level evidence by conducting a sophisticated and methodologically rigorous analysis of administrative data (e.g., Medicaid data) to create a unique nationally-represented data set stemming from the first ever longitudinal investigation comparing the effectiveness of pediatric concurrent care versus standard pediatric hospice care to improve pediatric and family outcomes.
