End-of-life research centre for Hull University
Hull University has launched a new research centre that will develop high quality end-of-life care at local, regional and national level.
The new Centre for End of Life Studies (CELS) has been established in response to an ageing population, and will bring together academic, policy and practitioner views.
University funding allowed for a ‘scoping study’ last summer, which established local expertise in the field and interest from external organisations.
Professor Margaret Holloway, professor of Social Work and Director of the Centre for End of Life Studies said: “We want our research to make a difference to the lives of people facing end of life and bereavement, whether that be the peaceful end to a long life or end of life in more difficult and sometimes traumatic circumstances.
“It is essential that as academics we work in close partnership with policy and practice professionals, as well as with individuals and communities in a genuine exchange of knowledge.”
A launch event this week brings together speakers from the field.
