It is generally recognised that research into palliative care is important in order to understand the needs of dying patients and those important to them. It is also acknowledged that palliative care is a sensitive area to investigate, therefore any research undertaken needs careful planning and delivery. The Centre for Palliative Care aims to carry out different research projects including some sensitive areas like understanding the needs and aspirations of the bereaved during dying and after death. The Centre will also take every opportunity to share widely any new knowledge from its activities, whilst inviting other  outside researchers to share their findings. Such sharing and dissemination will be done through a series of lectures starting with the lecture on the 20th February 2014 as outlined below.

All lectures are free to attend and open to anyone interested in palliative and end of life care issues. However, there may be a charge of £25 if a place is booked and not taken or cancelled in time to offer it to someone else.
