New April Date!
The CSU Shiley Haynes Institute for Palliative Care is excited to host the 2022 annual National Symposium for Academic Palliative Care Education and Research in an in-person format, with rescheduled dates of April 21‒22, 2022.

It is the only event of its kind in the country designed for university faculty, practitioners, and researchers focused on advancing palliative care.
The annual conference features a dynamic agenda of plenary, paper, panel, and workshop sessions highlighting how to incorporate palliative care concepts into research, courses, and experiences at all educational levels.

“The Advanced Practice Certificate course is not clinical supervision, but is the closest thing to it that I’ve seen in a curriculum. It combines top-notch case-based learning with the very best clinical mentorship. Anyone who goes through the course and invests in their learning, should be well prepared for the certification exam.”
