Under the experienced guidance of Mary Ellen Macdonald, PhD (Program Head), Pediatric Palliative Care Research at McGill is on the leading edge of this young discipline. Nationally networked, this group of researchers focuses on clinically pertinent and theoretically grounded studies.
Family bereavement, quality of life in children with cancer, and the unique needs of health professionals working in pediatric palliative care are among this group's compelling topics of interest and expertise.
An active group of clinical and academic researchers, the Pediatric Palliative Care Research group meets regularly to discuss study design, methodology, research ethics, conference presentations and publication.
Peds Palliative Care Researach Rounds are held on the last Wednesday of each month during the academic year at the Montreal Children's Hospital (rm E303). Please see the 2014 schedule for more information about those meetings.
