Understanding International Research on Children’s Palliative Care – The ICPCN Experience
November 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
As part of a seminar and lecture series, Professor Julia Downing, Honorary Professor at Makerere University and Chief Executive of the International Children’s Palliative Care Network will be speaking at the Cicely Saunders Institute on the topic: Understanding International Research on Children’s Palliative Care – The ICPCN experience
There is an urgent need for more research in children’s palliative care. Whilst the amount and quality of research has increased over the past decade, the lack of evidence in the field is at risk of hampering developments. Palliative Care Network undertook a Delphi study to prioritise the global research agenda for children’s palliative care. Highlights from these studies will be discussed, along with the challenges and lessons learnt in undertaking collaborative international research in children’s palliative care.
The lecture will take place at the Dinwoodie Lecture Theatre, The Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College, Bessemer Road, London. SE5 9PJ.
