Seven projects to be funded by the Marie Curie Cancer Care Research Programme
Seven projects from the Marie Curie Cancer Care Research Programme
Marie Curie Cancer Care has awarded more than £1 million to seven projects from the Marie Curie Cancer Care Research Programme, which aims to improve end of life care for people with cancer and other life-limiting conditions.
The research projects cover two themes from the second call for funding including; exploring variation in care at the end of life and controlling symptoms in the last year of life.
A wide range of studies have been funded from looking at the end of life care needs and experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans older people and the development of equitable service provision for this group to looking at the changing care and support needs of people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and their carers.
