The Chronic Illness and Palliative Care research theme aims to improve the quality of cancer survivorship and palliative care
In our research on Chronic Illness and Palliative Care we are helping to bring high quality palliative care to a broader range of under-served populations, for example in our research on supportive decision-making with patients with dementia in residential care and people with advanced heart disease and advanced kidney disease. Our research team has also conducted world leading trials on nurse-led interventions to support patients to manage and prevent deterioration of hear t disease. Equally, our research highlights the necessary supports for family carers with whom the health service must work hand in hand to provide effective and compassionate care- see Cancer Caring Coping.
