SAN DIEGO, CA – April 5, 2017 csupalliativecare.org. The California State University Institute for Palliative Care today announced its keynote speakers who will headline its second national conference for academic faculty interested in advancing palliative education and research. Innovate. Investigate. Educate: Advancing Academic Palliative Care Education and Research, will be held September 28 – 29, 2017 in North County San Diego. Drawing participants from across the US, this event fosters collaboration and innovation in teaching and research, with the goal of improving care and quality of life for the country’s serious and chronically ill patients.

Palliative care provides those with a serious or chronic illness – from the time of diagnosis throughout the course of treatment – care that optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and managing suffering. It is delivered by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, pharmacists and other practitioners to address the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of patients and their families.
