As part of the MORECare project we are organising a series of workshops looking at key issues in which methodological guidance is needed when developing and evaluating models of service delivery and complex interventions in palliative and end of life care.
MoreCare Masterclass, 7th November 2012
On 7 November 2012 at the Liverpool BT Convention Centre we held a joint Masterclass between the MORECare research team and the National Cancer Research Institute on research methods in palliative and end of life care. The masterclass formed part of the NCRI conference and aimed to
1) present and discuss challenges and ‘best practice’ in research on palliative and end of life care
2) identify key requirements to further this field of research building on MORECare Methods of Researching End of Life Care.
Presentations were given by Carl Johan Fürst, Irene Higginson, Eduardo Bruera, and Nancy Preston and can be found here

A joint PRISMA – MORECare summit on outcome measurement in palliative and end-of-life care (EoLC) will be held during the 12 EAPC congress in Lisbon (Portugal) on the 19th May 2011. This closed meeting at the EAPC congress will bring together experts, clinicians and researchers with a particular focus on outcome measurement. It will be chaired by Professor Irene Higginson from King’s College London and will include around 30 experts.
The aim of this joint summit is to examine and identify best practice to measure end points in evaluations on palliative and EoLC, including suitable measures that show validity, reliability, are responsive to change and appropriate in EoLC, methods to reduce respondent burden, and timings of measurements in short term and longer term follow-up. We are aiming to reach a consensus on these issues.

A joint MORECare CECo-COMPASS event on ‘integrating qualitative and quantitative data in complex intervention evaluations in palliative and end of life care research” will be held on the 9th June 2011, Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London. This invitation only workshop will bring together recognised experts in quantitative and qualitative methods, as well as palliative care and more generic health services research.
The workshop aims to identify best practice in combining / integrating qualitative and quantitative data in the development and evaluation of complex interventions and service models in palliative and end of life care, and the best ways of reporting this work. We are aiming to reach a consensus on these issues.

A joint MORECare CECo-Compass expert think-tank workshop on “Developing and evaluating complex interventions in palliative and end-of-life care: ethical and legal barriers and solutions” will be held on the 28th June 2011, Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London. This invitation only workshop will bring together high calibre experts, clinicians and researchers with a particular focus on ethics. This workshop is jointly organised by MORECare and CECo-COMPASS.
The think-tank aims to bring together experts to debate the state of the science on ethical challenges in effectiveness research and to form a consensus on best practice to develop and evaluate complex interventions in palliative and EoL care.
