Research Matching Grant on the Farewell Homecare Program


Prof. Wallace Chan has received a grant of HK$106,190.63 from the HKSAR Government’s Research Matching Grant Scheme, allocated via CUHK’s Research Allocation Committee, to support him to conduct a research project on evaluating the effectiveness of the “Farewell Homecare” Project. This grant amount is on top of the grant of HK$212,381.25 funded by the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals.

The Farewell Homecare Program is a new service which aims to provide home palliative care services to patients living in the community and also their family caregivers. With the multidisciplinary and holistic approach, it is hoped that patients could experience better quality of life in their end of life. Effectiveness of this program will be evaluated in the aforementioned research project.

Congratulations to Wallace!
