Professor Catherine Walshe

Professor

Research Overview

My research expertise is in palliative and end of life care. I have two main research interests: the way that palliative care is provided especially within primary and community care settings; and the experience of symptoms at the end of life. I am currently engaged in projects examining the effectiveness of social action projects on quality of life at the end of life (2014-2016), peer mentors for those with advanced cancer (2015-2018), a trial of NAMASTE care (2016-2018) and an evaluation of Cottage Hospice (2016-2018) . I am also interested in research methods and dissemination, and edit the journal 'Palliative Medicine'.
