Palliative care

The palliative care group aims to stimulate palliative care research in primary care and to consolidate a sound academic research base for palliative care in the community.

SIG meeting 13:15-14:15 on Monday 4th July @ UCLan and on Zoom

The plan for the SIG meeting is to discuss research priorities in primary palliative care and using the SIG to build capacity to do that research.

Here is a zoom link for those who would like to join but can't be at UCLan in person:

Objectives of the group

  • To facilitate palliative care research within primary care, particularly collaborative studies
  • To identify key research questions in the provision of palliative care in the community,    for both malignant and non-malignant illnesses
  • To assist each other and discuss methodological issues in carrying out our research
  • To hence  improve the quality and quantity of end-of-life research conducted in  the community
  • To be a resourse to the SAPC executive when dealing with  issues relating to palliative care
