We are looking for a PPI member to join our Project Advisory Group
The aim of this one year project is to understand more about the factors that influence emergency admissions at the end of life for people with cancer. We are looking for a person who is currently living with advanced cancer or who is caring or has cared for someone with advanced cancer. The PPI member will join our Project Advisory Group that meets twice a year, providing support, advice and feedback to the project team. Members can attend meetings in person or via telephone or Skype.

The Cicely Saunders Institute (CSI) is part of King’s College London (KCL). It is home to the academic department of Palliative Care, Policy and Rehabilitation, it is also home to the King’s College Hospital (KCH) clinical palliative care team of nurses and consultants, and to a Macmillan patient information and support centre. The CSI is the world’s first purpose built institute for research into palliative care. Find out more about the CSI on our website http://www.csi.kcl.ac.uk/
Patient and carer advisors are able to access support and advice from the key contact person for the main project team and other members via email, telephone or in person. You will also be given access to resources such as journal articles and any other material the project team holds which is felt to be of use. Time will be taken to discuss technical details about the project which are not clear to lay members of the PAG. Experts by experience will be asked for regular feedback on their experience and how the PAG is responding to their needs.
If attending formal meetings, we will reimburse travel and accommodation expenses.
