Event description

Description

Research can help improve the care and support people receive. It can help you understand what works and why. It can help you understand what doesn’t work. It can help to inform decisions on strategy, policy and practice.

In 2015, the Scottish Government set out its 5 year vision to improve palliative care in Scotland in its Strategic Framework for Action 2016-2021. This includes a commitment to evidence based knowledge exchange across Scotland.

Researchers from Marie Curie, the University of Edinburgh, NHS Lothian and the University of Glasgow, as part of the new Scottish Palliative and End of Life Care Research Forum, have undertaken a comprehensive scoping review of Scottish palliative care research, published between 2006-2015. This has mapped key areas that are relevant to clinical practice, service development and policy.

Join us for this free half day seminar to see what palliative care research exists in Scotland, what gaps there are and how this can help inform and improve the reach and quality of palliative care.

The event will be opened by Shona Robison MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport.
