Studying for a PhD at the Institute
The Institute is a world leading centre for palliative care research and an official collaborating centre of the World Health Organisation. By choosing the Institute for PhD research studies, you are given the opportunity to be at the heart of the latest developments in the field.
You will also become part of exciting and breakthrough research projects which not only influence clinical practice, but national and international policies for palliative care. Studying for a PhD at the Institute is a great opportunity for joining, contributing and benefiting from a multidisciplinary environment. The flexibility of combining social science, psychology, nursing, medical and health services research provides the prospect for the development of cutting edge and high quality research.
The Institute's research team not only combines professionals from multiple disciplines, but also from different countries and cultures. The research evidence generated is highly sensitive to different cultures and health care systems, and also relevant to multicultural settings. Moreover, the collaboration of palliative care and rehabilitation teams offers a unique interface of knowledge and experience to improve care for patients facing a chronic and life limiting disease and for their families.
