In particular, over the last 10 years he has worked on two main lines of research:

  • Assessment of insomnia in palliative care: focused on the search for tools for the assessment of insomnia in patients in the final phase of life and the associated psychological clinic and possible interventions to be developed.
  • Spiritual needs: focused on the assessment of spiritual needs in end-of-life patients and health care personnel. The main objectives are to determine and delimit this type of needs and the specific weight they have in the end-of-life situation for symptom control.
