Supportive and End of Life Care in Primary Care


The Unit’s research focuses on the experience of living with complex and life-limiting conditions, survivorship following treatment for cancer, patient empowerment of support for carers. We collaborate closely with Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull, local CCGs and hospital trusts. We apply a range of quantitative and qualitative methodologies to our research in this area.

Recently completed research includes:

  • What makes palliative care needs "Complex"?: a multisite sequential explanatory mixed methods study of patients referred to specialist palliative care (Evaluation study)
  • CHAT-P – online intervention to empower men with prostate cancer to identify and express health and other needs.
  • CHAT-B - developing an online holistic needs assessment for patients with bladder cancer.
