Palliative Care Studies Advisory Group

The Palliative Care Studies Advisory Group is a patient and public involvement (PPI) panel who work closely with the palliative and end of life care research group, to advise on current and future research in palliative care.


The Palliative Care Studies Advisory Group are a friendly group of local people who work closely with our researchers, to advise on our programme of research. The group play a crucial role in ensuring our research is relevant to patients and carers, and gives a voice to those with personal experience of palliative and end of life care. To read more about the activities of the group you can read our Briefing Paper which describes the role of PPI in palliative care research.

Anyone with experience of palliative care services or hospice can join, this includes patients, their family members and friends. Involvement contributes to increasing knowledge and can also provide an opportunity to meet new people with similar experiences. The group meet in Sheffield (or on-line) twice a year, and regularly communicate by e-mail or on-line. Group members are reimbursed for any travel expenses and refreshments are provided at meetings.
