Dame Cicely Saunders Award for Academic Excellence

26th January 2017

Joanna Davies, PhD Research Training Fellow at the Cicely Saunders Institute has been awarded the Dame Cicely Saunders Award for Academic Excellence.  The award is for her work as part of the Outcome Assessment and Complexity Collaborative (OACC).  OACC is a research project led by Dr Fliss Murtagh and Professor Irene Higginson at the Cicely Saunders Institute.

The project implements routine collection of patient-centred outcomes data in hospices, hospitals, care homes and in the community.  The research team uses this data to improve the quality of care for patients and families.  Joanna has been recognised for her ongoing contribution at St Christopher’s Hospice.  She uses data analysis and feedback to engage clinical teams, understand the complexity of patients and evidence the care being delivered.
