About State of the Science
The purpose of the meeting is to support and advance the science of hospice and palliative care by fostering community and multidisciplinary collaboration, building capacity through investigator development, and sharing cutting-edge research by scientists at all career stages:
- hear from leading researchers about the latest science in palliative care and hospice - across the lifespan
- network as a scientific community to foster interdisciplinary collaborations
- learn the latest in research design and methods
- participate in investigator development activities across all research career stages.
If you're a researcher whose focus is on people with serious illness or a clinical scientist who is interested in actively working in hospice and palliative care research, or if you are considering research as a career direction, this meeting is for you.
Supporting partners are member organizations providing marketing support for the State of the Science in Hospice and Palliative Care research symposium.
