Survey on Research Activity - Summary of Results is Available Now

The Palliative Care Research Network aims to develop a platform for sustainable research collaboration which is based on a priority-driven and clinically relevant research agenda. 

In 2016 the PCRNV compiled and circulated an online survey to assess current palliative care research activity across Australia and to identify what resources would be needed to increase research capacity. The survey was open from February 22 – April 15 and a total of 64 surveys were completed.

A summary of the survey results is now available here.


Setting Research Priorities for Palliative Care

In 2015 the PCRNV undertook a process to confirm research priorities for the next 5 years (2015-2019), to help inform and improve palliative care provision. A wide range of key stakeholders: consumers, health professionals, and PCRNV members, were consulted in the process.

A report providing a brief overview of the process and results is available here.
