Our mission at the Research Centre for Palliative Care, Death, and Dying (RePaDD) is to make a difference to care at the end of life. We do this by examining the issues and challenges experienced by people living with a life-limiting illness, their carers, and the health and care professionals supporting them.
We develop innovative solutions and advance the knowledge and evidence in palliative care to improve society’s experience of death and dying.
Our experience in delivering successful national palliative care projects, and our strong collaboration with multidisciplinary experts and organisations, strengthen our capability in conducting world class research and in achieving impact.
We conduct clinical and service studies and develop online palliative care resources and applications.
Our work in this area contributes towards ensuring that quality palliative care can be delivered in all healthcare settings - whether in hospitals, aged care, homes, hospices, clinics, or the community.
We examine and respond to community and consumer needs, attitudes, and views with respect to death and dying and palliative care.
Our research in this area supports the needs of the wider community, empowers them to make informed decisions, and builds their death literacy.
We build, synthesise, and disseminate the evidence for palliative care. We also create innovative digital solutions to improve evidence translation and use.
Our research in this area builds palliative care capacity of the health and aged care workforce, and the health literacy of the general community.
RePaDD is committed to working collaboratively with researchers, palliative care and aged care services, and consumer organisations to improve care for those who are ageing, caring, dying, and grieving.
