Wendy Anderson is Associate Professor of Medicine In Residence in the UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine and Palliative Care Program as well as the School of Nursing Department of Physiological Nursing. She leads a program of research, education, and quality improvement with the goal of improving care for seriously ill hospitalized patients. Dr. Anderson worked with critical care and palliative care colleagues in UCSF Medical Center and the Schools of Nursing and Medicine to developed the "IMPACT-ICU: Integrating Multidisciplinary Palliative Care into the ICU" project. This project integrates palliative care into intensive care units by training and supporting ICU bedside nurses to identify and address patient and family needs for symptom management, emotional support, and communication. She led an expansion of the IMPACT-ICU project across the five University of California medical centers, and is working to disseminate the program to other hospitals. Dr. Anderson co-leads efforts to engage patients and families into ICU care at UCSF through Project EMERGE. This project is redesigning ICU care to partner with patients and families, reduce preventable harms, and optimize patient and family experience and outcomes. Dr. Anderson also co-directs the palliative care education program in the UCSF School of Nursing. This program provides palliative care education to nurses studying for advanced practice, as well as to professionals from multiple clinical disciplines who are in practice. Clinically, Dr. Anderson attends on the UCSF Palliative Care Consultation Service. She is actively involved in student, resident, and faculty education about communication, palliative care, pain management, and ethics.
