PhD Fellow Awarded for Academic Excellence


Joanna Davies, PhD Research Training Fellow was awarded the Dame Cicely Saunders Award for Academic Excellence from St Christopher’s Hospice at their annual general meeting in October 2016, for her work as part of the Outcome Assessment and Complexity Collaborative (OACC), led by Dr Fliss Murtagh and Professor Irene Higginson at the Cicely Saunders Institute.

The OACC is implementing routine collection of patient-centred outcomes data in specialist palliative care settings, and using this data to improve quality of care for patients and families.  Joanna has been recognised for her ongoing contribution at St Christopher’s, using data analysis and feedback to engage clinical teams, understand the complexity of patients and evidence the care being delivered.

Congratulations Joanna!
