To assess the frequency and intensity of medical students' moral distress occurring in end-of-life care. We developed a questionnaire describing 10 potentially morally distre...

Using Nurse Care Managers Trained in the Serious Illness Conversation Guide to Increase Goals-of-Care Conversations in an Accountable Care Organization.

Community-dwelling adults with serious illness benefit from conversations about their goals for care. We undertook a project to increase the number of serious illness conversations occurring in an accountable care organization (ACO) using a script delivered telephonically by nurse care managers.

Medical Cannabis Use in Glioma Patients Treated at a Comprehensive Cancer Center in Florida.

Glioma is a devastating primary tumor of the central nervous system with difficult-to-manage symptoms. Cannabis products have been postulated to potentially benefit glioma patients. Recent state legalization allowed investigators an opportunity to study glioma patients' adoption of medical marijuana (MM).

Self-rep...
