Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island (HHCRI) has announced that Vincent Mor, PhD, MED, a member of its board of directors, has been awarded the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s (NHPCO) 2013 Distinguished Researcher Award. The Distinguished Researcher Award was created by NHPCO to recognize an outstanding body of research that has contributed to the enhancement of hospice and palliative care.

Mor, a member of the HHCRI board of directors since 2009, is a professor of Medical Science, Health Services, Policy & Practice at Brown University. HHCRI is the major teaching affiliate for hospice and palliative medicine of The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

Awarding Excellence

“We are thrilled to learn about this prestigious award Dr. Mor has received for his many years of innovative research,” said Diana Franchitto, President & CEO of HHCRI. “We are extremely fortunate to have him as a member of our board of directors. His commitment to excellence in the hospice and palliative care field and the insight he brings to HHCRI are tremendous.”

Mor was presented with the Distinguished Researcher Award by NHPCO President and CEO J. Donald Schumacher, PsyD, at an NHPCO conference in late September. The conference brought together more than 1,000 hospice and palliative care professionals to explore innovation and excellence in clinical end-of-life care delivery.

“For thirty years, Vincent Mor’s research has focused on the impact of health care services on quality of care and outcomes for frail and chronically ill patients and his many contributions have improved the care many people have received,” said J. Donald Schumacher, NHPCO president and CEO. “One of the most important things we as a professional community can do is to shine a light on individuals who have contributed much to the work we are doing to care for those at life’s end.”

Mor’s Credentials

In the mid-1980’s Mor headed the National Hospice Study – the initial evaluation of the impact of hospice care under the then new Medicare hospice benefit – on the cost and quality of life outcomes experienced by terminal care patients. Most recently, Mor and his Brown colleagues have documented large regional variation in hospitalization rates, including end-of-life transitions and the use of hospice and palliative care.

Mor has been principal investigator of nearly 30 NIH-funded grants as well as awards from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The Commonwealth Fund, and other private foundations.
