UAB and the Center for Palliative and Supportive Care.
The mission of the Southeast Institute for Innovation in Palliative and Supportive Care at UAB is to expand palliative and supportive care expertise and increase access for people living with serious illness in the Southeast and their loved ones. Through collaborative research and interdisciplinary training opportunities, we intend to build a network of professionals committed to growing palliative and supportive care services.
The purpose of this three-day Innovation Summit is three-fold:
Connecting clinicians, educators, researchers, and administrators dedicated to the field of palliative medicine in the Southeast.
â€‹â€‹Learning about evidence-based practice, strategies to reduce health disparities, and effective cultural communication.
Sharing of palliative care expertise and evidence, which can address gaps and challenges to providing palliative care everywhere for everyone.
