Our research team is studying theoretical, empirical and methodological aspects of measuring the effectiveness of specialized palliative care. This involves developing and testing potential models for the provision of palliative care, as well as validating existing measures of palliative care effectiveness and creating new ones. A particular focus is the early involvement of palliative care services in the outpatient setting. This research is funded by the Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
