The major goals of this project are to identify the degree to which social disparities exist in physicians' communication about important clinical issues with patients with serious and life-limiting illnesses. This project also studies patient communication behaviors that exacerbate or attenuate those disparities. Results from this research will inform interventions for physicians and patients to promote better communication and thereby reduce or eliminate social disparities in care.
