The Health & Social Care Research & Development Division of the Public Health Agency (HSC R&D Division), in conjunction with All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC), are pleased to announce that the second Doctoral Fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Care to support and develop research capacity across the island of Ireland is now open. The Call will close on the 29thJune 2012. The Fellowship will commence in January 2013.
All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care, is an all island Consortium of twelve hospices/palliative care providers and universities, all working to improve the experience of supportive, palliative and end-of-life care on the island of Ireland, by enhancing the capacity to develop knowledge, promote learning, influence policy and shape practice. The aim is to secure best care for those requiring palliative care and approaching end-of-life.
The three-year Doctoral Fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Care is intended to enable the individual to undertake research training as a means of developing a research career in Palliative Care, and to follow a training programme leading to a PhD. The Doctoral Fellowship represents a significant investment for AIIHPC, HSC R&D Division and for the individual Fellow. It is essential that applicants intend to pursue a long-term career in the area of palliative or end-of-life care and must be prepared to demonstrate their commitment to research in that field.
