CSUMB Team Receives $60K Grant for Palliative Care Study
A palliative care research proposal led by a professor at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) has received a grant of $60,000 from Hospice Giving Foundation, an independent grant-making foundation focused on end-of-life care and preparedness.
CSUMB is a Campus Partner of the CSU Shiley Institute for Palliative Care.
Since 1997, Hospice Giving Foundation has proudly awarded over $25 million in grants to regional programs dedicated to strengthening and improving hospice and palliative care, and other end-of-life care services, for children and adults.
The grant will fully fund a feasibility study to plan how best to offer palliative care education in Monterey County to strengthen the capability of healthcare providers delivering high quality, linguistically and culturally appropriate care to people with serious illness and their families.
Working to Expand Access to Palliative Care
“I’m very grateful that our team received these funds for us to complete a full investigation into what educational model would best serve our community,” said Alyssa Erikson, RN, PhD, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Nursing at CSUMB, and the Faculty Director of the CSU Shiley Institute for Palliative Care at CSUMB.
