By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The new year has seen WMCares initiate several new projects which are already well underway. Topics range from the use of subcutaneous Furosemide in practice to mental health and suicide risk in palliative patients and it is hoped the initial results of these will be available later in the year.

This will be perfect timing for them to be displayed at our free to attend Research Showcase on 20 October 2020. This will be a fantastic day allowing us to share local research and innovation as well as hearing speakers involved in projects large and small across the West Midlands region.
