Research Working Group

The Research Working Group (ResearchWG), led by Dr. Mhoira Leng and Dr. Omar Shamieh, aims to Support the development of a robust, high-quality, ethical evidence base for palliative care within humanitarian situations and emergencies.

The ResearchWG identifies research opportunities in the field of humanitarian palliative care and seeks to curate relevant literature. In addition, the ResearchWG prioritizes developing and maintaining collaborative relationships with individuals and relevant research institutions and universities. Advising, connecting, and supporting young and new researchers interested in this field and identifying potential funding and partnership opportunities are also areas of focus for the ResearchWG.
