A post-doctoral fellowship (PDF) opportunity is available to conduct (program) evaluation research related to interprofessional palliative care education as part of the Dr. Joshua Shadd – Pallium Canada Research Hub at McMaster University (https://fammedmcmaster.ca/about-us/newsroom/news/josh-shadd-pallium-research-hub).
Core palliative care competencies and support by palliative care specialists can enable different health care professionals to provide a palliative care approach. One of the priority research areas is to understand the processes through which interprofessional education and training improve palliative care practice, particularly: 1) how palliative care education and training influence the way different health care professionals collaborate, 2) the practice changes implemented through interprofessional education and training, and 3) how these changes interact within each clinical context to achieve impacts toward a more unified approach to access and palliative care service provision across the health care systems.
Through the development of a five-year (2021-2025) comprehensive evaluation and research plan, Pallium Canada and the Dr. Joshua Shadd – Pallium Canada Research Hub at McMaster University have outlined a series of studies to understand how education and training activities and other learning innovations lead to improved palliative care outcomes and continuously enhance the value of interprofessional education and training in combination with other change levers to achieve the Quadruple Aim (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4226781/) of delivering high value health care.
Pallium Canada (http://www.pallium.ca/) is a non-profit national organization founded in 2000 dedicated to spreading the palliative care approach and building primary- or generalist-level palliative care capacity across different professions, care settings, and disease groups. It offers a suite of award-winning, interprofessional Learning Essential Approaches to Palliative Care (LEAP) courses (https://www.pallium.ca/courses/) for health care professionals and facilitates the Canadian Palliative Care ECHO® Project (https://www.pallium.ca/palliative-care-echo-project/) to create virtual communities of learners. The fellow will have the opportunity to engage with the organization and network to conduct evaluative studies toward interprofessional aspect of the education/training, and to characterize impacts on changes to practice/to identify barriers and facilitators to implementing change(s).
This fellowship is a unique opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in (program) evaluation, palliative care education and training, (online) learning technologies, and mixed-methods research, in an interdisciplinary team environment. The successful candidate will also participate in other, related Dr. Joshua Shadd – Pallium Canada Research Hub activities alongside knowledge translation.
The primary supervisor is Christopher A. Klinger, PhD (https://experts.mcmaster.ca/display/klingerc), Assistant Professor (Part-Time), Department of Family Medicine. His research interests are in health services and education research with a focus on (hospice) palliative care. He regularly teaches research methods and knowledge translation courses within the University of Toronto’s graduate Translational Research Program (https://trp.utoronto.ca/person/dr-christopher-a-klinger-phd) and co-chairs the Quality End-of-Life Care Coalition of Canada’s (QELCCC; http://www.qelccc.ca) Research and Knowledge Translation Committee.
The fellowship experience is set to meet the academic needs and career development goals of the Post-Doctoral Fellow, via:
- Mentorship and training by the research supervisor and Co-Investigators
- Participation in regular research meetings and check-ins
- Participation in regular research rounds and the Palliative Care Journal Club of the Division of Palliative Care
- Peer support and collaboration with other research trainees at the Dr. Joshua Shadd – Pallium Canada Research Hub
- Guidance and support toward the development and submission of funding applications
- Support toward the development and submission of (conference) presentations and manuscripts for publication
- Access to Pallium Canada’s course suite and Canadian Palliative Care ECHO® Project sessions

The fellowship is funded for one year with the possibility of a second year extension, pending further funding. The salary is competitive at $45,000/year plus research allowance. Knowledge translation support (including, e.g., attendance of academic conferences and open access publications) will also be provided.
Requirements: The candidate must have completed a PhD in a health, social sciences, or education research related discipline, have an interest in education research/(program) evaluation, and strong skills in study design, measurement, and data analysis.
