Patient-Centered Education & Research

Patient-centered Education and Research was founded in 2003 to support the work of a group of doctors, nurses, educators and researchers who formed the Palliative Care- Heart Failure Education and Research Trials (PC-HEART) collaborative. PC-HEART is our major project. We are working to identify ways to manage symptoms and improve communication and decision making for heart failure patients and their families.

We began our work with a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to support PC-HEART, and with donations of time, energy and money from many people, corporations and foundations. We continue to be a volunteer organization, with the vast majority of money supporting the work we do.

Our work has been possible due to support from many organizations and individuals, as well as many hours of volunteer work. As a 501(c)3 charity we rely on public support. Your donation will help further our work to develop and distribute education for people living with serious or life-shortening illness and their families.
