Summary This program of work will explore and empirically evaluate existing translational approaches and their application to palliative care as well as develop recommendations for study design to effective implementation into practice.

Project Details

The growing research capacity and vibrant clinical trials groups in Australia have created a rapidly expanding evidence base in palliative care.  Yet the methods for translation of research findings into palliative care practice are not well established or tested including across the different sites of palliative care delivery – acute hospital, palliative care units and community care. This program of work will explore and empirically evaluate existing translational approaches and their application to palliative care as well as develop recommendations for study design to effective implementation into practice.
