Palliative Perspectives


The NPCREU hosted its first seminar, Palliative Perspectives, on February 9th 2015. Palliative Perspectives is a new forum for graduate students, faculty, and clinicians to come together to discuss and debate ideas in palliative and end-of-life care. Anyone is welcome.

Manuel Zimansky, NPCREU member and PhD student in nursing at the University of Osnabrueck (Germany), presented on his PhD research: Approaches to family nursing in oncology: an international comparison. Click here for an abstract of Mr. Zimansky’s presentation.
