Observatory Groups

The IOELC Network

The Observatory is proud of its links with individuals and organisations beyond the campus. One such inclusive link is through membership of IOELC Network.

Who can be a member?

The network membership continues to increase and encompasses all disciplines with many levels of experience.The network particularly welcomes members local to Lancaster but extends its membership to areas as far away as New Zealand! With our member list currently standing at 189, we are always happy to encourage others to join.

What are the benefits?
  • We hold bi-monthly Research Seminars, usually on the third Thursday of the month and between 09:30am and 11:30am. We invite people from different backgrounds to speak about their research and/or experiences in the field of end of life care in the form of a 40 minute presentation. All members of the network are invited to attend these seminars, (whether in person or via a live webcast), and are particularly invited to actively join in the discussion that follows the presentation. Dates for forthcoming seminars can be found via the Future Research Seminars link on the right-hand side of this page.
  • Following each Research Seminar and where the relevant permissions from the speakers have been granted, the month's topic of discussion/presentation is posted on this site as either a PDF document, a link to our "Virtual Meeting Area" or both. Members will be notified when the previous seminar's presentation is available to view through the e-list and from the Previous Seminar Presentations link on the right of this page.
  • The email addresses of all members are added to an E-List and this is used as a form of two-way communication. Not only are we able to keep you abreast of research developments, events of interest, recent news pertaining to end-of-life issues and news of forthcoming seminars but we hope that members would feel they could post information of their own.
