    Provider survey on the role of palliative care in rheumatology

    WHO: APPs, attendings, and fellows are invited to take the survey  

    WHAT: a provider survey to better understand the perspectives of palliative care providers like you on the role of palliative care in rheumatology 

    WHY: morbidity & mortality in patients with rheumatic disease is high, and despite this, very few patients with rheumatic disease are referred to palliative care. We are hoping to understand if and how we should incorporate care for patients with rheumatic disease into palliative care practices. 

    How can YOU help: complete this survey! It takes <5 minutes and your responses will be invaluable in making sure the palliative care provider perspective is well represented across different practice sites and geographic areas. 

    Thank you in advance! Please reach out to Shannon Herndon (shannon.herndon@duke.eduor Chris Jones(christopher.a.jones@duke.eduwith any questions.

    *This study has been determined exempt by Duke IRB (Pro00114459).

    On Friday, August 12th, 2022, we lost a member, founder, mentor, and most importantly friend.  Our long-time PAHPM president and member, Kathy Kemle passed away unexpectedly.  The news has left many of us heartbroken, and all missing something really important.  Kathy touched so many of our lives in so many ways.  Whether as a member of PAHPM, a student who precepted with her, a colleague who collaborated on a project, presentation and even textbook—we all are connected to Kathy in some way.  We are also all in debt to her gift as a leader, mentor, forerunner, and motivator.  She shepherded many of us into the fields of geriatric, palliative and hospice medicine.  She inspired many of us to do a little bit more, and believe in ourselves. 

    Please visit our “Remembering Kathy” page and share how she has impacted you.
