Applied research to investigate, discover and evaluate better ways to manage complex symptoms and problems among those affected by progressive and life threatening disease. Our work focuses on patients including those at the end of life and their carers/family in the areas of cancer and also non-cancer including COPD, heart failure, HIV/Aids, renal failure, and long term neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
There are five main strands of work:
- Measuring outcomes
- Evaluating and improving care
- Symptom led research
- Dying in society
- Needs assessment and policy.
We offer a multi-professional MSc, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate in Palliative Care, which are research based, along with training for a number of PhD students.
