Primary Palliative Care Research Group

Innovative collaborative work with St. Columba’s Hospice

Strathcarron Hospice is collaborating in an innovative project working with Amy Hardie to make a film that will be shown in cinema and BBC television in 2015.

Patients and staff are the main characters in the film which reflects the life story of 6 patients as well as hospice life. The film challenges the taboo around death, dying and hospices and is called “Singing Hospice”.

Erna Haraldsdottir has now moved to lead the Education Department at St. Columba’s Hospice where she will facilitate research, while being an active member of our research group.
