Palliative Care Clinical Trials Unit
The Palliative Care Clinical Trials Unit collaborates with others to conduct research that matters to patients and their families.
In 2019 the department was awarded $461,101.00 by the Medical Research Future Fund to conduct a clinical trial titled “A randomised controlled trial of a multidisciplinary model of community palliative care to improve patient-centred care in preferred place.”
This trial will be conducted in collaboration with the Hunter Medical Research Institute.
The department supports multiple investigator-led research to understand and improve the quality of care and patient’s experience of care.
