Palliative and End of Life Care
The Palliative and End of Life Care research group conducts multi-disciplinary research that informs practice and policy in palliative and end of life care both nationally and internationally.
We undertake high quality research to improve the quality of life of patients with life limiting illness and their family caregivers; to improve palliative care service provision and; to influence health policy.
The group has close links with NHS providers and hospices nationally and locally, and with the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) within The University of Sheffield. We work closely with a range of international collaborators and academic institutions worldwide.
We have specialist expertise in a range of methodologies including:
- Qualitative research
- Service evaluations
- Mixed methods research
- Co-production and service user involvement
- Systematic review and evidence synthesis
- Health economics
- Oral history
