PhD scholarship: Understanding and measuring the impact of complementary therapies in palliative care: a mixed methods study to develop an approach appropriate for practice 
 
Project Description 
The Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Department (MCPCRD) at University College London (UCL) is seeking an outstanding, highly motivated and enthusiastic candidate for this PhD scholarship. This is an exciting opportunity to undertake a PhD jointly funded by the UCL, Bloomsbury and East London Doctoral Training Partnership (UBEL DTP) and Marie Curie: Care and Support through Terminal Illness. The successful candidate will undertake a mixed research methods PhD to seek further understanding of, and how to measure appropriately, the impact of complementary therapies in palliative care. The proposed research methods include an evidence review, qualitative studies and undertaking co-design workshops. 
 
The overall objectives of the doctoral research are: 
 To understand the disparity between the outcomes used in trials of complementary therapies in palliative care populations and the range of benefits patients’ report 
 To develop with patients, therapists and family carers, an outcome measure that minimises any mismatch between what patients’ seek and what is measured in clinical trials.
