Dr Cherith Semple from School of Nursing and Paramedic Science in Ulster University (UU) and Dr Carla O’Neill from the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems in UCD were awarded funding through the North-South Research Programme for this joint collaborate project on Family Centred Cancer Care. The aim of the project is to; Plan, develop and evaluate a novel evidence-based and theory-driven eLearning resource to equip health and social care professionals to communicate with, and support families with dependent children, when a parent is at end of life from cancer.

The North-South Research Programme is a collaborative scheme funded through the Government’s Shared Island Fund. It is administered by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) on behalf of the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science.

The EU4Health ‘DDS-MAP’ project will develop new digital training provision for healthcare professionals in the EU. The project aims to strengthen health systems and support the digital transformation of healthcare by understanding the digital learning needs of healthcare professionals and then developing innovative learning programmes that respond to these needs.
