Technology in Palliative Care (TIP) Study: Priority Setting to Improve the Care of Patients with Advanced Cancer
We need your help to identify the research priorities for technology in palliative care.
My name is Dr Amara Nwosu and I am an Consultant in Palliative Medicine and an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the Palliative Care Institute Liverpool (PCIL), at the University of Liverpool in the UK.
My colleague Tamsin McGlinchey (Research Assistant, PCIL) and I are currently undertaking the Technology in Palliative Care (TIP) Study.
Aims and Objectives of the Study
Establish ‘priority areas’ to influence further research and development into how technology can improve the care and experience of patients with advanced cancer/palliative care. The project has the following objectives:
- Objective 1: Scoping review: identify existing uses and examples of how technology can be used to support the delivery of healthcare, identifying opportunities for palliative care.
- Objective 2 (research study): 2 stage Delphi process for consensus on what the ‘priority areas’ for technology intervention/studies in palliative care should be.
- Objective 3: Develop an International Collaboration to facilitate and support future grant applications.
Why have we contacted you?
To invite you to take part in the Delphi study (Objective 2 above). We are hoping for a wide range of participants with a diversity of experience and expertise, and we would value your thoughts on the future role and priorities for technology in palliative care.
Please read the Participant Information Sheet which provides details of what to expect if you decide to take part.
If you wish to nominate a colleague who you think would be interested in this study, please forward this email to them.
