Key Areas of Current Research

The PCIL's specific focus on Care of the Dying is unique within world research and necessarily engages a frame of reference beyond care of the dying. Accordingly, the methodological focus of its interdisciplinary research is broad, engaging studies in basic science and pharmacokinetics, to qualitative psychological and social inquiry.

The challenges in generating meaningful scientific evidence in this sensitive area have motivated the Institute to develop novel and innovative research methodologies, often in collaboration with international academic partners.
