Dr. Kathleen Lindell's Research


Dr. Lindell’s program of research is directed toward improving the quality of life for patients with advanced lung disease, specifically Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) and their family caregivers. This research focus developed from experience working to improve support available to patients with IPF and their caregivers, assuring patients and caregivers are aware of the most recent education available to improve their knowledge, and engaging in advocacy efforts to increase awareness of this disease. Currently she is involved in research efforts to improve palliative care preparedness of patients with life-limiting illness and their family caregivers.
