About Us

The Palliative Care Research Cooperative Group (PCRC) was established through multiple years of cross-institutional discussion and networking. In January 2010 the PCRC kick-off retreat was held in Denver, Colorado. It was here where the core principles were defined by 25 participants representing a broad range of disciplines in academic medicine, community-based hospice and palliative care, federal agencies, diverse research and clinical interests, private and public institutions.

  1. Develop efficient palliative care research capacity nationally.
    • Infrastructure
    • Data systems and procedures
    • Metrics
  2. Support the conduct, analysis, and dissemination of high-quality research in palliative care.
  3. Train and mentor new, existing, and future clinician-scientists committed to advancing palliative care research.

The PCRC continues its mission and vision through new members and expanding disciplines.
