Having exceeded our overall recruitment target, study recruitment has now closed. We are continuing with longitudinal data collection from our cohorts of participants – patients and carers taking part in the Longitudinal Interview Study, patients taking part in the Care Preferences Survey and health care professionals taking part in the Barriers & Facilitators Study. It is an exciting time for the study as we begin to analyse our baseline interviews with patients and carers. We recently presented some of baseline findings from carers at the Palliative Care Congress in Harrogate (12th-14th March 2014) and Marie Curie Conference in London (28th March 2014). In early June we will be presenting some of the baseline findings from interviews with patients at the European Association for Palliative Care conference in Lleida, Spain.
