          About This Event

          Summary

          On Nov. 17-18, 2014, the IU Simon Cancer Center’s Mary Margaret Walther Program in Palliative Care Research and Education will host a two-day symposium entitled “Passages and Promises: Innovations in Palliative Care Research Education and Practice.”  The focus of the symposium is on research for improving communication among patients, family members and clinicians in the context of advanced cancer. 

          Acclaimed authors Gail Sheehy and Mark Nepo will join national palliative care experts Robert Arnold,  Amber Barnato, Vicki Jackson and Timothy Quill and local faculty on the first day for a series of plenary talks, workshops and small-group discussions exploring the latest innovations in care for those at end of life.  The second day will consist of a “think tank” for a small number of local investigators who will partner with the national experts in developing pilot project proposals, a limited number of which will be funded for up to $50,000 by the Walther program.

          To nominate yourself or a colleague to participate in the collaborative think tank, visit www.cancer.iu.edu/education/palliative-symposium/application-form.shtml to complete the online application. Applications are due July 18.

           

          The symposium is made possible with the support of the Walther Cancer Foundation; Indiana University Health Cancer Centers; IU Health Division for Values, Ethics, and Pastoral Services; IU Simon Cancer Center; IU School of Medicine; Goldstein Group Financial Advisory LLC; and the Columbia Club; and through a partnership with the Spirit & Place Festival.

          Please contact Mary Lynn Hoffmann at hoffmaml@iu.edu for more information or visit www.cancer.iu.edu/walther-symposium.
