Annual Palliative Care “Evidence and Impact” symposium
Hosted by the Royal Society of Medicine
The event will present master’s level palliative care research and quality improvement projects, inspiring participants to find their own research interests and develop their own projects. This event will benefit trainees, junior doctors, nurses and allied health professionals alongside senior clinicians who want to learn more about how to get involved with research.
With an increasingly ageing and multi-morbid population, research in the field of palliative care is vital to ensure the experience of patients with life-limiting conditions is improved. Attitudes to research and inclusion of patients with life-limiting conditions are changing and patients and communities are increasingly understood as being partners in developing research questions and projects.
By attending this meeting, you will:
- Develop an understanding of research methodologies and careers opportunities in academic palliative care
- Identify key opportunities and challenges for research in the context of palliative care
- Learn about current research topics in palliative care
Closing date for submissions to the George Adams Prize (open to medical students) or Research Prize (open to healthcare students and healthcare professionals with master's level research projects, quality improvement or audit in the field of palliative medicine) is 23 October 2023.
