Research Initiatives

Research Principles

Five guiding principles lay the foundation for research initiatives at Roger Neilson House:

  • All research is geared toward advancing our patient care and improving patient outcomes.
  • A member of the CHEO Palliative Care Team and/or Roger Neilson House is a co-investigator of any research involving Roger Neilson House guests and their families.
  • All research proposals are approved by the Research Committee.
  • Both quantitative and qualitative studies are supported by the Research Committee.
  • The development and use of documentation tools support research initiatives.

Research Priorities

  1. End of life symptom treatment, recognition and monitoring
  2. Parent’s assurance of the quality of care
  3. Pain assessment and control in palliative care patients
  4. Bereavement
