New tools have been launched to help patients/families in accessing palliative care, and healthcare professionals in providing care and support. They were developed by the Mesothelioma UK Research Centre based on research findings*, input from their Patient and Public Involvement Group, and a collaboration with the charity Mesothelioma UK. 

Palliative care animation

The short animation aims to demystify palliative care, address misconceptions, and explain in a sensitive way what palliative care is and how it can help.
