Sharing stories and stressors – A biweekly town hall for palliative care nurses from across Canada

For the last couple of months, The Canadian Hospice and Palliative Care Nurses Group has been hosting a bi-weekly town hall for palliative care nurses from across the country, to come together over Zoom and to share and receive support from one another. These sessions are facilitated by Michelle O’Rourke, an esteemed palliative care nursing leader and accomplished author. They are a safe place to exchange perspectives and experiences about the implications of COVID-19 for palliative care nursing. The next town hall will take place from 7-8pm EST on Wednesday August 19th 2020. Registration is required- please email if you wish to attend this or future sessions 

Beyond Giving Voice – Western University Virtual Seminar Series

June 4, 9, and 11, 2020

Our colleague Gail Teachman has organized a SSHRC-funded symposium series, on the topic of voice in research. This symposium is free to attend.

Description: ‘Beyond Giving Voice’ will be hosted as a series of virtual interactive symposium webinars in June 2020. We invite you to join us as we explore theoretical, methodological, and ethical implications of claims to be ‘giving voice’ to children through research. While presentations will be focused on qualitative research with young people, the knowledge shared will be equally relevant to the design and conduct of methodologies with other populations.

Full details, and registration information, can be found here.
