Research description

My research describes use and timing of specialist palliative care (SPC) in the Richmond community, identifies disparities in SPC usage and/or disparities in end-of-life care and whether SPC moderates those. I also examine hospice vs. palliative care and in-home palliative care in California Medicare populations. Additionally, I study the well-being in caregivers of adults with AML, the cross-over trial of reduced hydration with HDMTX in pediatric leukemia, extrahepatic malignancies in NAFLD, and peri-operative mirtazapine.
