Complex Healthcare Processes

Leading the way. Excellence in research 

Research in this group aims to advance understanding of the ways that life-changing and life-limiting diseases impact on individuals and families, and to understand the ways that their experiences are shaped by complex health needs. Our discovery research will contribute to improvements in care quality, safety, and effectiveness. From this foundation, we seek to design, build, implement and evaluate processes of care that improve patient and family experiences and healthcare outcomes in the community and in hospital, including identification of risk factors and effective preventive strategies.

Our two research themes focus on ageing and dementia (led by Jackie Bridges) and cancer survivorship and end of life care (led by Claire Foster)

Ageing and Dementia Theme

Ageing and Dementia

Our research focuses on improving quality of life and care for older people with complex health conditions.

Our research focuses on understanding and improving the lives of people affected by cancer (including those at increased risk), life-limiting conditions, and those at the end of life.
