Pre-congress seminar

The European Palliative Care Research Centre (PRC) and the European Association for Palliative Care Research Network (EAPC RN) will arrange a pre-congress seminar at Clayton Hotel outside Dublin 6-7 June 2016.

Initiation of large studies requires leadership and allocation of sufficient resources, in order to create an environment for evidence-based medicine and evidence-based practice. In addition, sustainable international collaboration is important. Thus, different methodological, theoretical and practical aspects of palliative care research are dealt with at the seminar.

The aim is to have a fruitful and exciting event that facilitates sharing of cutting-edge knowledge. The seminar will also allow researchers at PhD and post doc. levels to present projects in plenary for feedback from experienced researchers and all participants in the sessions. A detailed scientific programme will be presented in due time.

To make this a dynamic meeting, registered participants are invited to give short presentations of planned projects, ongoing projects or projects in the phase of analysis covering important aspects and challenges related to research methodology. The presentations will be selected based on submitted protocols (or draft protocols).
