Wendy Anderson is Assistant Professor of Medicine in the UCSF Division of Hospital Medicine and Palliative Care Program. She leads a program of research, education, and quality improvement with the goal of improving the quality of care for seriously ill hospitalized patients. Her current projects focus on palliative care in the ICU and on improving hospital pain management. 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 currently leads an expansion of the IMPACT-ICU project across the five University of California medical centers. Dr. Anderson also 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. 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.
