The Palliative Care Research Group is based in the Sobell Study Centre (SSC) at Sir Michael Sobell House (specialist palliative care service), Churchill Hospital. SSC provides leadership and administrative support for a programme of palliative care education, research and continuing professional development for health and social work professionals in Oxford, nationally and internationally. Palliative care research is still in early development. There are three threads to palliative care research in Oxford: symptom management, end-of-life care and rehabilitation. Each of these threads can be woven around most of the themes of the Biomedical Research Centre at Oxford, in particular, blood and cancer, diabetes, heart and stroke, brain, women and chronic diseases. Examples of current projects: death rattle; fatigue in advanced cancer; end-of-life care in stroke patients. At the international level, the PLATO Project (www.platoproject.net) provides a platform for collaborative research and education between Oxford and our palliative care partners in Argentina and South Africa.
