The increased number of patients living with chronic and terminal illness intensifies the need to provide excellent supportive and palliative care, primarily for older people and often for extended periods of time prior to, as well as throughout, the final stages of illness.
The Supportive and Palliative Care Research Group (SPCRG) aims to carry out research which will lead to greater understanding of the patient experience of chronic, debilitating and life-threatening illness and improvement in professional delivery of healthcare.
The research focus of the group reaches beyond cancer into traditionally under-researched areas eg older people, stroke and dementia. Its remit extends along the continuum of prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and care of the dying and the translation of research findings into service development initiatives.
