Dr. Isaac Chua is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a palliative care physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA. His research focuses on improving care for seriously ill patients with concurrent substance use disorder, evaluating and implementing digital health applications (i.e., telehealth and artificial intelligence) to improve palliative care delivery, and developing novel quality measures in palliative care. He recently received a mentored patient-oriented research career development award (K23) from the National Institute on Aging to develop a patient-reported experience measure that measures goal-concordant care among seriously ill older adults with multimorbidity.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
