|Title:||National Survey of Palliative and End of Life Care in UK Medical Schools|
|Project Description:||Every decade since 1983 there has been a national survey of palliative and end of life care (PEOLC) teaching conducted in the UK. The aim of these surveys has been to collate how PEOLC is taught in different medical schools, in terms of time afforded, topics covered, teaching methods used, and how it fits within the wider medicine curriculum. The data gathered through these surveys has been influential in securing more time and dedicated personnel for PEOLC teaching in many universities, as well as providing an overview of the national practice. The last survey was published in 2013.
The timing of this iteration of the survey means that it will not only provide an update on national practice in PEOLC teaching, but will also capture how PEOLC education was modified and innovated across the country during the COVID-19 pandemic.
