Biography

Jackie Robinson,  BHSc, MPallCare, PhD is a Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner and Service Lead Clinician for the Auckland Hospital Palliative Care Team.  She also holds a joint appointment as Senior Lecturer with the School of Nursing at the University of Auckland.  Jackie has recently completed her PhD which explores the benefits and burdens of hospital admissions for patients with palliative care needs.  She is now in the process of developing her own program of research focused on the role of the acute hospital in palliative and end of life care and in particular the factors associated with a preference to return to hospital during periods of acute illness.

Jackie is an active member of the University of Auckland’s Te Arai Palliative and End of Life Care Research Group which is the only bi-cultural research group in New Zealand.  She works closely with her colleagues on numerous research projects as co-investigator and clinical advisor including topics such as palliative care in dementia, aged residential care settings, the cost of caregiving in palliative care and experiences of care at the end of life from the perspectives of bereaved families.

Auckland has a large Chinese population which is expected to increase significantly over the next decade. Jackie’s visit to Hong Kong has been inspired by her desire to better understand the impact of a palliative care model which is based on a Western model of death and dying on Chinese people with palliative care needs living in New Zealand.

Title

The role of the acute hospital in palliative: a program of research from the Te Arai Palliative and End of Life Care Research Group

Abstract:

In New Zealand, as in many other developed countries, palliative care policy focuses on supporting people nearing the end of their lives to be cared for and die at home. However people with palliative care needs continue to experience multiple hospital admissions in the last year of life.  Indeed, in most countries the majority of people will die in a hospital setting. Yet, the role of the acute hospital within an integrated model of palliative care is poorly understood. I will draw on my PhD research, as well as research undertaken by other members of my research group, to discuss our work in this area.

This presentation will also provide an overview of some of the research being carried out by the Te Arai Palliative and End of Life Care Research Group from the School of Nursing at the University of Auckland. Te Arai is the only bicultural research group internationally. We are currently conducting studies exploring the end of life circumstances of people living in residential aged care settings, the needs of people with dementia, new models of care between hospice and aged care, and care for Maori and Pacific people.
