Scholl Academic Centre launches its 2019-2023 strategy


It was our great pleasure to formally launch our Scholl Academic Centre in March 2019. The launch was made possible by generous grant funding from the Dr Scholl Foundation based in Illinois, USA and we were delighted that Susan Scholl was able to speak at the launch on behalf of the Dr Scholl Foundation.

At the launch we were joined by many of our partners from across the globe and these partnerships will be fundamental to establishing the reputation of the Scholl Academic Centre here on the Isle of Man, across the UK and internationally.

Anne Mills, Chief Executive of Hospice Isle of Man and Director of the Scholl Academic Centre said: "In our strategy document, we talk more about the global partnerships we have already forged and we set out our priorities for the next four years so that it aligns with the Hospice strategy ‘Much More Than a Building’.
It is our desire to create synergy and promote our ambitions for Education, Innovation, and Research and the publication of our first strategy document marks a further significant step in establishing us as a Centre of Excellence. We have always been clear in our aspirations for Hospice Isle of Man to be a national leader in palliative and end of life care, and I am delighted to be able to share those aspirations with this strategy."

The strategy was launched at the Scholl Academic Centre's 2nd Annual Research Symposium around end of life care “Are we getting it right?” at the UCM Nunnery Campus, Douglas on Friday 21 February 2020. The event featured a number of leading professionals in their field including; Professor John Ellershaw, Director of the Palliative Care Institute at the University of Liverpool, Professor Gunn Grande, Professor of Palliative Care at the Division of Nursing, Midwifery & Social Work at the University of Manchester and Dr. Alison Coackley, Clinical Lead for Serious Illness Care Programme UK. The symposium also presented a number of palliative and end of life posters, articles and findings from the Scholl Academic Research Team which have recently been presented at global conferences.
