Current research

The Palliative Research Group, led by Professor Per Sjøgren, has recently been a part of a large multicenter national randomized project to investigate the effect of early intervention for palliative patients with cancer (The DanPact study) and is now the driving force of a large randomized trial on a fast-track transition from oncological treatment to specialized palliative care at home for patients with cancer (The DOMUS study). The group has also initiated a newly funded project to investigate palliative care for patients with advanced cancer in Greenland. The project will be the basis for future organization of palliative care in Greenland.
