Jennifer Kryworuchko has devoted much of her work as a nursing researcher to studying the organization and delivery of health-care services to optimize patient and family involvement in health decision-making and to improve access to palliative care. Her community-engaged scholarship – intended to influence practical changes in policy, system design and care delivery – has been focused on ensuring that seriously ill individuals, with their families and medical team, are engaged in shared decision-making about the end-of-life care they desire.
