Project summary

Care for people at the end of life is both a pressing humanitarian issue, and a contested space, for the 21st century. Population ageing, changing patterns of mortality and morbidity and the growing prevalence of chronic disease present growing challenges for the development of end of life care. Professor Clark's project is a comprehensive analysis of the emergent field of end of life care in order to understand how interventions are developed, implemented and assessed, and with what consequences. It adopts a global perspective to examine approaches of varying types and characteristics.
