Roshni T. Guerry, M.D.

Director of Palliative Care Education; Value Institute Scholar

Roshni T. Guerry, M.D.
Roshni T. Guerry, M.D., is the director of palliative care education at Christiana Care and a scholar in Christiana Care’s Value Institute. She attended medical school at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry on a dean’s scholarship and completed her residency in internal medicine-pediatrics and a fellowship in palliative medicine there. She is assistant program director for the Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship of Jefferson Medical College.

At Christiana Care, Dr. Guerry worked as an adult hospitalist with Christiana Care Hospitalist Partners and now is an attending physician on the pain and palliative inpatient consult service. She is involved in the ethics committee and in resident education around palliative care topics.

Her main research interests involve studying ways to improve communication among patients, families and providers. She also is interested in advanced care planning; ensuring that patients have accurate information when making important decisions, including improvement of documentation in patients’ charts so it is readily available at crucial moments; and improving symptom and pain management for palliative care patients, such as improving safe and effective opioid prescribing.

Dr. Guerry is involved in palliative care education and training, recognizing that the rapidly growing elderly population, combined with relatively few palliative care-trained providers, offers an opportunity to teach general practitioners important skills in palliative care. She also has a strong academic interest in diversity and women’s affairs in health care reform.
