Supporting scholarship in palliative care across the medical specialties

      In this essay, we share our experiences as three academic nephrologists at different stages in our careers who work closely with Randy Curtis at the University of Washington. Our experiences provide a window on Randy's remarkable ability to support scholarship in palliative care outside his own specialty of pulmonary and critical care medicine. We begin by providing a brief description of our experiences working with Randy and what this has meant to each of us. We then draw on these individual and collective experiences to distill out key practices that we think are especially conducive to supporting scholarship outside one's own area of specialization.
