About us

We are a thriving community of researchers, clinicians, educators and students: working together to change essential clinical practice through our cancer and palliative care research.

Our contributors include: nurses, allied health professionals, psychologists, statisticians, economists, anthropologists, pharmacists and sociologists; bringing a unique set of skills and perspectives to our work. This diversity not only attracts international interdisciplinary research collaborations, but also offers an array of methodological expertise; allowing us to ask the right questions to generate theory, influence policy, and change practice.

Professor Alison Richardson, the UK's first clinical-academic professor in cancer nursing, who holds a joint clinical chair between the University of Southampton and University Hospitals Southampton.
