CHAS is committed to the development of research in paediatric palliative care. The CHAS Plan states that CHAS “will demonstrate a commitment to evidence based practice in children and young people’s palliative care across the UK through a structured programme of learning, research and development”.
As a research active organisation, CHAS receives many requests from undergraduate and post-graduate students, academics and statutory and voluntary organisations to be part of or partner with them in research projects.
If you are considering making a request of this kind the guidance document below has been prepared to assist you in this process.
