Grantee in News: Laura Gelfman on Palliative care and Heart Failure Patients in JACC View MoreBACK

On October 15, 2017, The Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) published research co-authored by 2012 AFAR Hartford Scholar in Geriatric Medicine Laura Gelfman, MD exploring the benefits of palliative care and heart failure patients.


In “Palliative Care in Heart Failure: Rationale, Evidence, and Future Priorities,” Dr. Gelfman and co-authors share that patients living with heart failure receive palliative care significantly less often than patients with other illnesses, including cancer, despite evidence that such care improves symptom management and quality of life.

The JACC article is accessible by subscription only, but a related feature can be found on here.


Laura P. Gelfman, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine
