About the Symposium
The Second National Symposium for Academic Palliative Care Education and Research gathered more than 160 academicians and clinicians from over 90 US and non-US institutions, and from disciplines ranging from nursing to social work, from medicine to ethicists and chaplains. Plenary, paper, panel, and workshop sessions, with a poster reception, showcased the work of over half of the attendees at the two-day event, where they shared their innovative ideas and tools for incorporating palliative care concepts into research, courses and experiences at all educational levels.
Looking forward to the Symposium in 2018, we invite 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 to attend next year’s conference, October 11-12, 2018!
