The End of Life Care Study Day was held in conjunction with the APMs Supportive and Palliative Care Conference in association with the All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC)
Research methodology study day organised by the APM science committee.
This one day course covered the key areas in the curriculum for research methods. It included critical appraisal of systematic literature reviews, quantitative and qualitative literature, with ‘hands-on’ workshops. Research in palliative medicine, including a workshop on developing the research question was covered.
This course is essential for trainees who do not get research exposure during their training and those wanting to develop their interest or own research further.
Watch out for future dates.
