Critical perspectives on policy and practice (across settings)

High-quality end-of-life care is underpinned by sound evidence of service effectiveness and an understanding of patient and family experiences and preferences. 

This strand of our research is concerned with the development and evaluation of healthcare interventions, extending the evidence base for patient and public experiences of healthcare and how this can better inform policy and practice in a wide range of settings. 

It includes the articulation of critical perspectives on contemporary debates and policy in end-of-life care. These include place of death, patient and family involvement in advance care planning and decision making in end-of-life care. It also covers personal, professional and societal attitudes to death and dying, and the ethico-legal drivers shaping end-of-life care delivery nationally and internationally.
