Palliative care research: Achieving change in practice and policy

We are delighted to jointly host the Creating Connections Palliative Care Conference, organised by the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre at the University of Hull, and the Centre for Improving Palliative, Aged and Chronic Care through Clinical Research and Translation (IMPACCT) at the University of Technology Sydney.

This free-to-attend event is open to all​ with an interest in palliative care for people with advanced and chronic illnesses. It provides an opportunity to see some of the exciting and leading-edge research being undertaken as part of our collaboration funded by the Research England's International Investment Initiative (I3). The I3 builds on the established partnership between our both our Research Centres.

The conference features two keynote addresses on: Achieving Policy Change in Palliative Care by The Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, Ilora Finlay, Member of the House of Lords and Achieving Evidence-based Change in Palliative Care by Prof Irene Higginson, Professor of Palliative Care and Policy, Scientific Director, Cicely Saunders International, King’s College London.
