Daniel said

being invited to present some of my research to a palliative care audience was a wonderful example of the importance and role of inter-disciplinary working and research that honours the holistic approach at the heart of palliative medicine.

Daniel also presented two poster presentations ‘What are the spiritual and theological issues for chaplains providing perinatal bereavement care in Ireland’ and ‘When death comes before birth –the provision of spiritual and pastoral care following stillbirth in Ireland.’

In addition to his pastoral work, Daniel is currently a PhD research student at the Anu Research Centre at the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, UCC
