This chapter discusses how PDIA influenced the field of palliative and end-of-life care through the promotion of research, education, and training activities. An examination of PDIA involvement in each of these realms and the level of progress made then highlights some core aspects of how PDIA sought to make a long-term impact on the culture of dying in American society and the particular role of the caring professions within that.
