Palliative Care; end of life care; hospitalized elderly were my early career interests.
In the last four years, have been focusing on grief: both personal and professional.  we, at Duke, have done some survey data here in the Medical School and also amongst providers showing both the incidence of grief in learners and the relationship of professional grief to burnout amongst oncology providers.
