The National Symposium on Academic Palliative Care Education and Research is the only gathering of its kind that provides innovative ideas and tools for faculty who wish to include palliative care concepts in courses and experiences for undergraduate and graduate students. Anyone with a faculty appointment or position, or who conducts research in institutions of higher learning, post-secondary education or training programs, or organizations, who is engaged in palliative care education and/or research is invited!
Now in its fourth year since it was first launched as a California-based event, the National Symposium draws faculty from across the nation. Each year is filled with plenary and breakout sessions that offer challenging and expansive ideas for advancing academic palliative care education and research in your classroom, discipline, or department.
The 2017 National Symposium’s theme is “Innovate. Investigate. Educate: Advancing Academic Palliative Care Education and Research.”You can look forward to:
The keynote speakers and plenary sessions that will emphasize research activities undertaken by some of the country’s brightest experts in the field, will discuss why policy and quality improvement matters, underscore that there is still work to do to resolve disparities in the provision of care to those who are suffering from chronic disease, and address difficult questions that may arise on campuses and classrooms about life and death choices.
Breakout sessions in which faculty from across the country will share their innovations and advancements, giving you tools that you can immediately use in your work.
Ample time for networking for you to expand your research collaborations with colleagues and symposium supporters.
