Dr. Grudzen graduated from Stanford University; she received her MD from the University of California, San Francisco, and an M.S. in Health Sciences from the University of California, Los Angeles. She is agraduate of the Emergency Medicine Residency at New York University/Bellevue Hospital Center, where she served as a chief resident, and the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program in health services research at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Grudzen has received funding from a number of foundations dedicated to improving health care for older adults with advanced illness, including the California HealthCare Foundation, the Brookdale Foundation, the American Cancer Society, Atlantic Philanthropies, and the John A. Hartford Foundation. She was named a Brookdale Leadership in Aging Fellow, a Mayday Foundation Pain and Society Fellow, and an American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine Research Scholar for her work on developing a model to better integrate emergency medicine and palliative care. Dr. Grudzen is completing a randomized controlled trial of palliative care consultation for Emergency Department (ED) patients with advanced cancer with funding from the American Cancer Society to test its effect on quality of life, symptom burden, and measures of health care utilization. Most recently, she was chosen as an inaugural member of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Innovation Advisors Program, where she is testing new models of ED care that will improve care, improve health, and decrease costs. She is the lead analyst for a $12.7 million Center for Medicare and Medicaid Health Care Innovation Award to evaluate the impact of a new model of geriatric emergency care to improve health and improve healthcare while lowering costs for Medicare beneficiaries who visit the ED. She currently serves as a national advisor for IPAL-EM, a national initiative funded by the Center to Advance Palliative Care and the Olive Branch Foundation to improve palliative care in emergency medicine. She is also one of ten Practice Change Leaders in Aging and Health, where she is testing the effect of palliative care for long-term care residents on avoidable hospitalizations.
