Survey: Determining Pediatric Palliative Care Practices in the United States

Stony Brook Children’s Hospital is conducting a national research study of pediatric hematologists/oncologists and pediatric intensive care physicians. As you know, pediatric palliative care has become a “hot topic” recently and there is an increasing demand for hospitals to provide these services. In order to provide the best care and the best education for trainees, we need to truly understand what the current state of pediatric palliative care is.

The goals of the survey are:

  • To define current trends in pediatric palliative care education and clinical care
  • To understand the factors that inform these trends
  • To identify areas for improvement and growth locally and nationally

In order to meet these goals, your help is needed. Please consider taking a 10-minute online survey. After the data is analyzed, the results will be shared with those who participated in the research.

If you have any questions, you may email the study chairs, Rina Meyer, MD, and Laura Czulada, DO, at or, respectively.

Thank you for your time and attention.
