Meetings and events

Prior to 2017, there was no focus for palliative and end of life care research at University of Bristol or across the South West; researchers and clinicians in different disciplines, institutions and settings were isolated, with no forum for networking and support and little collaboration to further larger grant applications.

Recognising the need for a regional hub, Drs Lucy Selman and Lucy Pocock established the Palliative and End of Life Care Research Network South West in January 2017, with the following aims:

  • Facilitating cross-institution and interdisciplinary connections, networking and collaboration
  • Generating/developing research ideas
  • Supporting clinicians and clinical services to become research active
  • Providing mentoring and support for junior researchers
  • Disseminating current/planned research, increasing impact and relevance 

We hold around 3 meetings each year and anyone with an interest in this area is welcome to attend. To be added to the mailing list for future events, please contact

Forthcoming meetings and events:

Palliative and End of Life Care Research Meeting 

We welcome anyone with an interest in palliative or end of life care research from any discipline. The meetings take place via Zoom and the meeting link is shared with all registered attendees. The meeting is recorded and may be shared on our website at a later date. 

Our last meeting took place on the 26th September. Head over to the 'past research meetings' to see the programme and watch the meeting.
