Welcome To Palliative Sedation

An EU Horizon2020 Research Project

About the Project

A €4 million project to investigate how best to help patients with distressing symptoms near the end of life will focus on the clinical, ethical, legal and moral aspects of providing deep sedation to dying patients across Europe.

Project Objectives

A collaboration of institutions across several EU countries, the PalliativeSedation project members will undertake a number of objectives across several ‘work packages’. Learn more about the objectives of this project.
