Improving Parent-Clinician Communication during Critical Illness

Tessie October, M.D., M.P.H., and her team are funded by a NIH K23 award to evaluate strategies for improving parent clinician communication during decision-making for critically ill children. The team is pilot testing a communication skills training intervention targeted to clinicians and assessing this intervention in terms of outcomes at the parent, patient, and clinician level. As a young investigator, Dr. October has received additional funding from the Children's National Board of Visitors grant, a CTSI-CN Voucher Award, and The George Washington University Fellowship program to support her research program.
