Academic Partners

Suncoast Hospice, Suncoast Hospice Institute's parent, was one of the founding members of The Center for Hospice, Palliative Care and End-of-life Studies at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. It is a disciplinary partnership center that connects academic faculty and research expertise with community provider research and clinical expertise to identify best practices and disseminate the latest research on a wide range of end-of-life issues.
The center supports research collaboration, funds pilot research grants to faculty, graduate students and provider researchers, funds graduate fellowships, and sponsors national educational conferences and seminars. The community benefits through the access it gains to patients and families, which enables the sharing of practical advice on how to maximize the benefits to patients, families and care providers.
