Dr Evangelia (Evie) Papavasiliou is a research scientist at the International Observatory on End of Life Care. She specializes in palliative and end-of-life care, in particular palliative sedation, assisted dying, pain and symptom management, and end-of-life decision-making.  She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology in 2004 (Lancaster University, UK) and entered the field of end-of-life care in 2006. She completed her Master of Research in Health Research (End-of-Life Care) in 2008 (Lancaster University, UK) and in 2011 she was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship as an Early Stage Researcher in EUROIMPACT (European Inter-sectorial and Multidisciplinary Palliative Care Training), an EU FP7 Initial Training Network aimed at monitoring and improving palliative care in Europe. Her research focused on the application of palliative (or therapeutic) sedation in contemporary clinical practice aiming to explore concepts, controversies and dilemmas currently underpinning the practice of sedation in end-of-life care. On the basis of the published output produced from this research, she was awarded her PhD in Health Research in 2014. She is currently working as a post-doctoral research associate at the International Observatory on End of Life Care, being one of the consortium members of ATOME. Before joining the Observatory, Dr Papavasiliou had been involved (as national expert, coordinator or co-lead manager) in a number of European and State funded programmes related to evaluation and assessment, social welfare, vocational training, life-long learning, stereotypes and equal opportunities.
