Blog post – findings update!

Hello readers,

Thanks for checking back in with me, I know it’s been a while, as always!

I’m writing this post because I wanted to update you all on the Power of Dreams research study that I’ve been working on with Dreams Come True, and (finally!) tell you about some results.

This exciting project has been running for nearly three years now and I’ve just presented some of the findings at the 7th International Cardiff Conference on Paediatric Palliative Care which was held in Cardiff last week.

The theme of the conference was ‘Medicine and Compassion’, and there were talks by speakers such as Professor Julia Downing and Professor Richard Hain – both doing great research in the field of paediatric palliative care.

I presented on the second day, and I’m really happy to share some of what I talked about here. As a quick reminder, the project looked at the impact of dream fulfilment on dream recipients, siblings of dream recipients, parents and other family members. Here is a small overview of some of my main findings!

This small snapshot of research findings represents just some of what has emerged from this study. Families taking part in the study study have taught me, and the charity so much about the complexities of dream fulfilment, and extended our understanding of the impact of dream fulfilment.

I’m currently writing my findings up in thesis form and hoping to publish them in the future, so look out for exciting updates on this unique piece of work. For now though, it’s back to that thesis!
