Top 10 Research Priorities for Palliative and End of Life Care for the island of Ireland, developed in 2015, guides researchers to address key research priorities for people with life limiting conditions and their families, carers, and health and social care professionals on the island of Ireland. For more information on how these priorities were developed see Palliative and End of Life Research Priority Setting Project for Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.
AIIHPC Palliative Care Research Network (PCRN) strategic plan 2023 – 2027 provides a framework for all those seeking to undertake palliative care research, from early career researchers to those leading and shaping international projects.
The Patients, their Families and Carers, and Interested Citizens Involvement in Palliative Care Research web page supports researchers to include people’s lived experiences to identify gaps in services, information and supports, and highlight issues.
AIIHPC is an established knowledge broker for palliative care on the island of Ireland and is in a unique position to unlock the potential of our Palliative Care Research Network members’ research to reach palliative care providers, health agencies, hospices, academic institutions, charity organisations and people with life-limiting conditions and their families, carers and interested citizens (through Voices4Care).
We support our members to disseminate research messages, knowledge and findings across the research cycle, from proposal to conclusion and beyond, to develop:
We support our Palliative Care Research Network members when seeking funding opportunities, writing, or revising funding proposals by:
“AIIHPC provided invaluable support and guidance on the development of the knowledge transfer and exchange work package for mySupport study. From the proposal stage when seeking EU funding to designing the project name and logo using input from AIIHPC’s Voices4Care panel (people with life-limiting conditions, carers and interested citizens). The Institute’s expertise, skills and resources have assisted in the development of the website, research literature and provided opportunities for dissemination to a wide variety of audiences supporting us to build a following for this research.”
