Completed research projects

Read about our completed research projects and their impact.

Sue Ryder has engaged in important clinical research for many years. Studies have ranged from small-scale academic projects by Masters students to national commercial clinical drug trials.

Within Sue Ryder, we are working together to nurture an inclusive research culture. Our goal is to foster curiosity, and turn this curiosity into innovative and progressive practice by engaging our staff, volunteers, service users, their families and carers in research and making participation the norm.

Research at Sue Ryder is supported and governed by a dedicated Research Governance Group (RGG). The RGG meets quarterly to discuss, review and approve existing and potential research projects, and to produce, develop and maintain robust research governance documents, polices, strategies and processes.
