Collaboration with Dr Keith Wilson
Researchers from WeCare Chair have published an article entitled Assessment of the wish to hasten death in patients with advanced cancer: a comparison of two different approaches in the journal Psycho-oncology. This article is the result of a collaboration with Dr. Keith Wilson of the Department of Psychology, Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre, Canada.
In 2015 Dr Wilson worked with WeCare Chair as a visiting researcher. During his time at UIC Barcelona, he taught a course entitled Assessing and responding to common emotional issues in patients with advanced chronic illness. Since then, Dr. Wilson has continued collaborating with the WeCare team and also acted as an external advisor for the design of international research projects.
This article is the first joint publication between Dr. Wilson and the WeCare team and it compares two clinical tools for the assessment of the wish to hasten death: el SAHD y el DDRS.
