Cicely Saunders Institute: Triennial Report

5th November 2020

The Cicely Saunders Institute’s latest Triennial Report 2017-2020 is now available on the Institute’s website https://www.kcl.ac.uk/cicelysaunders/about/triennial-report

The report features a wide-range of the Institute’s work, including evaluating and improving care, partnerships and engagements, and education and capacity building.

Professor Irene Higginson, Director of the Cicely Saunders Institute commented that serious health-related suffering is projected to increase in all countries, and we need to increase the provision of community palliative care and hospital palliative care services to ensure we meet people’s preferences about where they are cared for. Education, training and capacity building are key to ensuring that healthcare professionals have the skills and knowledge to deliver holistic, person-centred care.
