The research group of the WeCare chair, in collaboration with researchers from the team, has published the research protocol of the multicenter national project recently funded by the Carlos III Health Institute (PI19 / 1901). The project aims to design and systematize the evaluation of patients requiring palliative care. To do this, the team of researchers at the WeCare Chair counts on the collaboration of ten hospital centers, as well as patients and their families.
This protocol has been published in the BMJ Open Journal and has been reviewed by prestigious international researchers in the field. This work is the first published jointly by all the researchers of the project.
