Supportive care Early Diagnosis and Advanced Disease (SEDA)

SEDA Conference 2017, incorporating the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre Launch

The Research Group for Supportive care Early Diagnosis and Advanced Disease (SEDA) invites you to The SEDA Research Conference 2017, incorporating the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre Launch.

We are very pleased to announce that Professor Joanne Reeve, Professor of Primary Care Research and Professor Fliss Murtagh, Professor of Palliative Care, will be our key note speakers for the Event, both of whom have joined the SEDA research group in 2017.

Professor Joanne Reeve, BClinSci MBChB MPH DFPH FRCGP PhD

Joanne is an academic GP committed to the critical, creative shared conversations that strengthen primary care – ‘Now More Than Ever’. She leads an internationally recognised body of research supporting the critical development and delivery of Individually Tailored (personalised) primary health care. By combining expertise in the design and delivery of expert generalist medical care with methodological experience in complex intervention development and evaluation, she works to support primary care service re-design in key areas including frailty, problematic polypharmacy and mental health; all of which is inspired by her work as an inner city GP.

Professor Fliss Murtagh, FRCP PhD MRCGP

Fliss qualified in medicine in the UK in 1986. She worked in General Practice for almost 10 years, and then undertook specialist training in palliative medicine. She is now a Professor of Palliative Care at Hull York Medical School, and Visiting Professor of Palliative Care at the Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London, UK.

She is experienced in providing palliative care to a wide range of people with far advanced disease and their families, and has published extensively on palliative and end-of-life care needs, especially for older people and those with advanced kidney disease. She is also experienced in research methods: cohort and cross sectional surveys, psychometrics, implementation and use of outcomes, especially the Integrated Palliative care (or Patient) Outcome Scale (see www.pos-pal.org).

Over the day SEDA researchers will present studies which have used a range of applied health research methods (observational, clinical trials and qualitative studies) in people with cancer, non-malignant lung disease and the general public and across primary, secondary and hospice care settings.

The morning will focus on studies about the early diagnosis of cancer.

The afternoon will celebrate the launch of SEDA’s palliative care programme as the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre (WPCRC) including presentations from researchers and the WPCRC Director, Professor Miriam Johnson and Associate Directors Profs Una Macleod and David Currow.

We invite you to attend this free event and learn about some of the exciting and leading research currently being undertaken in Hull. Light refreshments will be available throughout the day.

This event is open to all academics, clinicians and health service commissioners with an interest in applied health research in early cancer diagnosis and supportive and palliative care for people with advanced disease.
