Abstract

In this chapter, we provide a brief review of the evolution of hospice and palliative care, tracking its trajectory from a countercultural movement to its eventual inclusion in mainstream medicine. Next, we discuss the history, status, and possible future of research that informs clinical practice in this field. Finally, we delve into the concept of team science, highlighting the benefits, challenges, and—we argue—the necessity of interdisciplinary research on behavioral interventions for seriously ill patients and their families.
