The boundaries of hope

core research   -   dialogues in clinical settings   -   ongoing collaborations

How are expectations described in end-of-life situations?

Can expectations change by the application of early palliative care therapies?

This line of research is being developed with Mario Luppi, Elena Bandieri, Leonardo Potenza, Eleonora Borelli and Vittorio Ganfi. This collaboration aims to analyze patients’ and caregivers’ narratives about their hopes and expectations when early palliative care is applied vs when it is not applied.
