Project: End of Life Care in Scotland

End of Life Care in Scotland

We work with colleagues on studies to promote aspects of end of life care in Scotland. Some of this is focussed in one rural region – Dumfries and Galloway. This work has attracted funding for the inaugural Dame Barbara Kelly Fellowship, awarded by the Crichton Institute.

The funding will allow a full time postgraduate research student to investigate in detail the challenges we face in delivering supportive, palliative and end of life care in Dumfries and Galloway.

The Network is co-ordinated by a Steering Group drawn from across the City.
