PROVIDENCE – The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization presented its 2013 Distinguished Researcher Award to Vincent Mor, Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island announced Wednesday.

Vincent Mor, a member of the Home & Hospice Care board of directors since 2009, is a professor of medical science, health services, policy and practice at Brown University.

“We are thrilled to learn about this prestigious award Dr. Mor has received for his many years of innovative research,” said Diana Franchitto, president and CEO of Home & Hospice Care. “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 Home & Hospice Care are tremendous.”

J. Donald Schumacher, president and CEO of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, presented the award at the organization’s conference of more than 1,000 hospice and palliative care professionals in late September. The Distinguished Researcher Award recognizes an outstanding body of research that has contributed to the enhancement of hospice and palliative care.

“For 30 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 Schumacher in a statement. “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.”

In the mid-1980s, 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 University 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 National Institutes of Health grants, as well as awards from the Robert Wood Johnston Foundation, the Commonwealth Fund and other private foundations.
