22 Nov Medical College part of $5M cancer study
Milwaukee, Wis. – The Medical College of Wisconsin has been selected to participate in a $5 million grant to study pain relief methods for patients with advanced cancer.
In contrasting standard hospital care with the services of “palliative care consultation teams,” the study will seek to find the specific conditions and activities that lead to better pain treatment, patient and family goal-setting, and satisfaction with care.
The National Cancer Institute awarded the grant to the National Palliative Care Research Center at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. In additon to the Medical College, three other sites will participate in the study: Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, the University of Pittsburgh, and Mount Carmel Health Systems in Columbus, Ohio.
