Breathlessness research at the Cicely Saunders Institute has been featured on Channel 5 News. The report highlighted CSI’s latest research showing that holistic breathlessness services reduce patient distress due to breathlessness and depression. Professor Irene Higginson, co-lead of the research and director of the Cicely Saunders Institute said: “These services contain straightforward, usually drug-free, approaches, such as information cards and plans to help at home in a crisis, practical aids and tips, as well as support for the whole person and family through palliative care. They could make a major difference to the quality of life of many millions of people in the UK.”
