National Applied Research Collaboration event on Public Involvement in Palliative Care Research

Categories: Education and Research.

The Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London, is hosting a joint event on behalf of NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) South London and ARC East of England about experiences of public involvement in palliative care research.

This event aims to share experiences and expertise in patient and public involvement in palliative and end of life care research.

Join us online on 18 October from 10am

We will hear from a fascinating range of researchers and public members about their experiences working together, with learning we can apply in palliative care. There will be plenty of time for you to ask questions and discuss with the speakers any ideas or issues raised.

We look forward to seeing you there!
