Professor Paul Chamberlain (alongside Dr Claire Craig) have been working with Marie Curie to revolutionise palliative care. Together with University of Cambridge and Sheffield Hallam University, Marie Curie launched its Design to Care Programme last week.

The five year £3.5m project aims to build the future foundations for pioneering tailored care for people living with a terminal illness.

Paul spoke to Charity Today about the project:

“With ever increasing pressures, a paradigm shift is needed to rethink how we deliver future health and care services. No single discipline can tackle this big challenge alone. The Design to Care programme brings an exciting, diverse mix of specialists to re-imagine end of life care. Design, as a discipline, is well placed to help tackle the complex interdependencies of health where there is no single answer. Adopting a ‘co-design’ approach, working together, we will be able to give marginalised groups a voice in how we shape future palliative care”
