Welcome to NCARE at the The University of Nottingham’s School of Health Sciences.
As the number of patients living with chronic and terminal illnesses grows, there is an increasing need to provide excellent supportive and palliative care, particularly for older people, and for extended periods of time prior to and throughout the final stages of illness.
At NCARE, we carry out research that:
Exploring experiences of giving and receiving care from the perspectives of patients, family carers/significant others and healthcare professionals.
Exploring how communication shapes patient and professional understanding and engagement in medical decision making.
Exploring how patients and families deal with the demands of increasingly complex treatment regimes within the home.
Understanding the preferences of culturally diverse, minority and under-served groups in relation to palliative and end-of-life care.
Developing the evidence base to inform developments in policy, practice and professional education.
Kristian is a principal research fellow and interim lead of NCARE. She is currently working on an international study to establish the effectiveness of a structured Advance Care Planning intervention to improve the quality of life and symptomatic control of patients with advanced cancer.
