Dr. Ellen Csikai is founding and continuing editor of The Journal of Social Work in End-of-Life and Palliative Care, published by Taylor and Francis. The journal presents research and original articles that explore issues crucial to individuals with serious, life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses and their families, including interdisciplinary interventions, practice innovations, practice evaluations, end-of-life decision-making, grief and bereavement, and ethical and moral issues across the lifespan. Dr. Csikai’s research primarily addresses cultural similarities and differences in health care approaches, communication and treatment decisions among older oncology patients, family members, and health care professionals in the U.S. and internationally with Cuban and Hungarian colleagues. She also offers a study abroad opportunity that examines social services in Mexico. At UA, she is part of the Alabama Research Institute on Aging as a faculty associate and Executive Committee Member and a faculty affiliate of the Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies Program.
