Theme Co-ordinator

The School has been in the forefront of developing palliative care research in Ireland ( The aim of this research programme is to illuminate the experiences of cancer survivors and patients requiring palliative care, their informal carers and their professional carer’s, with a view to improving the experience of both survivorship and palliation. These insights will be used to provide a sound evidence base for care and to develop a research continuum from bench to bedside through the development of co-ordinated research projects.
