Research Abstract

My primary research interests are in palliative care, with a focus on the religious and spiritual dimensions of the experience of life-threatening illness. I am particularly interested in prospective correlations between religious and spiritual characteristics of patients, physicians, and family caregivers and medical outcomes. My work also aims to develop and test spiritual care training for medical professionals and clergy.
