    Collapse overview
    Dr. Richard Mularski is an academic physician who leads research at the Center for Health Research and practices pulmonary and critical care medicine for Northwest Permanente, where he is also regional clinical quality lead for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and medical director for Pulmonary Care Management.

    Dr. Mularski is board certified in pulmonary, critical care, and palliative medicine. He has expertise in research methodology, quality measurement and improvement, translating findings from research into clinical practice, and implementing evidence-based medicine in the areas of obstructive lung disease, dyspnea, palliative care, and end-of-life care.

    He has performed evidence-based reviews and performance measure development for multiple pulmonary and palliative projects. He led the RAND Health pulmonary quality review for the QA Tools project and was lead author on a consensus statement for 18 quality measures for palliative and end-of-life care for critically ill, hospitalized patients.

    Dr. Mularski serves as site principal investigator on a number of clinical trials in COPD, including the ASPIRE AeriSeal and IBV Valve trials, co-investigator on the NHLBI Long-term Oxygen Treatment Trial, and site principal investigator for a multi-center collaboration, the COPD Outcomes-based Network for Clinical Effectiveness & Research Translation (CONCERT).

    He was the inaugural chair of the American Thoracic Society’s Quality Improvement Committee, currently chairs the society’s Ad Hoc Committee on Dyspnea Crisis and serves as its voting representative to the American Medical Association’s Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement. He is an officer in succession for president of the Oregon Thoracic Society.

    Dr. Mularski graduated from the University of Arizona College of Medicine and trained in internal medicine, pulmonary disease, and critical care at OHSU. He completed clinical research training and practical clinical training in hospice and palliative medicine, as well as training in health services research, before joining the Permanente Medical Group in 2006. Dr. Mularski is an adjunct associate professor of medicine at OHSU.
