A team of clinicians and researchers led by Dr. Christopher Kerr at Hospice Buffalo has begun a study that looks at the important of dreams and their role in supporting a "good death" for hospice and palliative care patients and their families. The team conducted their first study (published in The Journal of Palliative Medicine) by conducting multiple interviews with 59 terminally ill patients regarding their dreams. The team found patterns that could help patients and their family members find peace and closure. Dr. Kerr discusses the study at length in a TEDxBuffelo speech in December 2015.
