The Global Institute of Psychosocial, Palliative and End-of-Life Care (GIPPEC) is devoted to supporting and developing interdisciplinary research that addresses medical, psychosocial and societal problems related to advanced and terminal disease. GIPPEC aims to support and build local, national and international research collaboration, to generate meaningful evidence to inform health policy, clinical practice and public awareness, and to improve global access to psychosocial and palliative care for individuals with advanced and terminal disease and their families. The interdisciplinary scholarship that emerges from GIPPEC is intended to add depth and breadth to discussion, debate and decision-making at all levels regarding the complex and often controversial medical, legal and ethical issues that arise related to progressive disease and the end of life.
GIPPEC’s trainee program is an opportunity for learners to develop and build research skills in areas relevant to palliative care and to develop meaningful lines of research within well-developed research teams. GIPPEC trainee opportunities provide research mentorship, training, infrastructure and the opportunity to engage with an interdisciplinary network of scholars and investigators pursuing groundbreaking research in the field.
