As a university institution, we take our research role very seriously. The aim of our work is to improve the quality of life of our patients and their families and to promote evidence-based palliative care.

The Division of Palliative Medicine at the Department of Internal Medicine I is an ESMO-accredited Centre for Integrated Oncology and Palliative Care and the leading study centre of the Austrian Palliative Care Study Group (AUPACS). AUPACS is the platform for conducting clinical trials in which all Austrian Palliative Care Units can participate, with the aim of conducting comprehensive research in the field of palliative care. The focus of these studies is on outcome research, the improvement of quality of life through the treatment of distressing symptoms and the continuous development of palliative care therapies.
