4th Annual Research Symposium

On Friday 1st April 2022, the Hospice Isle of Man Scholl Academic Centre were joined at their 4th Annual Research Symposium at Keyll Darree, by leading professionals in end of life and palliative care. The title of the day was ‘The Changing Landscape of End of Life Care.’

In 2019, Hospice Isle of Man launched its Scholl Academic Centre, and since the Centre's inception, it has delivered important research information around the provision and quality of end of life care around the world. The ambition is that Hospice Isle of Man, through the research centre will progress into the top 10% of UK hospices with a reputation for high quality education, innovation and research.

The 4th Annual Research Symposium featured a number of global leaders in their field, including seminar chairs Professor John Ellershaw, Director of the Palliative Care Institute at the University of Liverpool and Professor Anne Hendry, Senior Associate of the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC). They were joined by others including, the Chief Executive Officer of Highland Hospice, Kenny Steele, Dr Emily Collis; a Consultant in Palliative Medicine of Central North West London NHS Foundation Trust and  Professor Max Watson, Director of Project Echo at Hospice UK.

Anne Mills, Hospice Chief Executive and Director of the Scholl Academic Centre said: “I am delighted to be hosting our 4th Annual Research Symposium, which has become a greatly anticipated annual event in the research calendar. We were lucky enough to gather together in person for our symposium at Keyll Darree. However we were able to also provide our symposium as a webinar which was greatly received, with viewers joining us from locations around the globe such as Portugal and Argentina. We are truly grateful to everyone who was able to join us for our Symposium and who continue to support us in our endeavours.”

The Scholl Academic Centre has now been recognised as a Centre of Excellence for their pioneering work around integrating Palliative and End of Life Care Systems. The research undertaken within the Centre is currently all grant funded, meaning specific funding is applied for to undertake any research activities. They have been successful in accessing funding both within the Isle of Man and from UK charities, trusts and foundations.
