Research Centre for Palliative Care, Death, and Dying (RePaDD)

Launched in 2019, RePaDD is a research centre for palliative care within Flinders University, South Australia. Significantly, it was Flinders University that created the world’s first academic chair in palliative care in 1987. RePaDD is the newest generation of this proud history.

The RePaDD mission is to examine the issues and challenges experienced by people living with a life-limiting illness, their carers, and the health and care professionals supporting them.

The purpose is to develop innovative solutions and advance the knowledge and evidence in palliative care to improve society’s experience of death and dying.

By bringing together researchers and projects, including CareSearch/palliAGED, RePaDD is connecting diverse perspectives and approaches to achieve meaningful outcomes.
