Research & impact
The Cicely Saunders Institute was the world’s first purpose-built Institute for palliative care, and it was established thanks to the pioneering vision of Dame Cicely Saunders. Towards the end of her life, Dame Cicely founded the Cicely Saunders International charity to carry on her work and advance palliative care research. Cicely Saunders International partnered with the Department of Palliative Care, Policy & Rehabilitation at King’s College London and opened our Institute in 2010.
We continue to be inspired by Cicely’s vision today, and we remain at the forefront of palliative care and rehabilitation by prioritising patient and public involvement and continuously adapting to the changing needs of global populations. We maximise our impact by integrating:
