We conduct ongoing research in the field of palliative care, and use the information we gather to develop tools to improve the quality of care provided to patients.
We provide resources and training to hundreds of staff and volunteers, both clinical and non-clinical, working at Victoria Hospice.
We provide many education opportunities for medical professionals, volunteers, caregivers, and other health care providers.
