What Will You Study
The PhD in Palliative Care provides opportunities for people working in palliative, hospice and end of life care, in the UK and internationally, to undertake advanced study. This programme meets the needs of palliative care professionals wishing to enhance their research skills, develop their critical understanding of policy and practice, improve their scholarship, and make an original contribution to knowledge development within their field, while at the same time fulfilling their existing responsibilities.
The specialist taught modules develop an understanding of the development of end of life services and movements in different settings and cultures around the world; the models of care that have been adopted; and the issues involved in assessing the impact of these – individually, socially and societally.
