Our work with the Wales Cancer Research Centre

The Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Centre has close links with the Wales Cancer Research Centre (WCRC).

Our Director, Professor Anthony Byrne, leads the Community Research Theme within the WCRC, and Professors Annmarie Nelson and Simon Noble lead on the Supportive and Palliative Care work package within this theme.

Our palliative care evidence review service (PaCERS) and our social care research strand are both funded by Welsh Government as part of the WCRC.

Palliative Care Evidence Review Service (PaCERS)

Our aim is to conduct rapid reviews to answer research questions of current importance to health care professionals and other decision-makers in relation to palliative care, in the shortest possible time (7-10 weeks).

This will allow the integration of research evidence into service development and practice at pace, and further embed research as part of daily practice. All rapid reviews are conducted using modified systematic review methods with a highly refined research question.

Social care research

In 2016, the Wales Cancer Research Centre received funding from Health and Care Research Wales to undertake research about cancer and social care. A conference was held to identify key service challenges and prioritise areas where research can support future practice change in relation to social care for people with cancer.

What are the next steps in social care for people with cancer?
