The lack of education and training for medical students and physicians on how to care for the dying is well documented. This grant supports the development and production of a bimonthly series in "The Journal of the American Medical Association" (JAMA) focused on end-of-life care issues during a one-year pilot period. The goal of the series is to provide practical information based on real cases that present common challenges in caring for dying patients. Each article will be centered on a particular patient and will be problem focused. Themes will be chosen that explore common but challenging clinical issues in caring for patients at the end of life. The series will be launched as part of JAMA's end-of-life care theme issue in November 2000.
