We are happy to invite you to the 2022 National Research Day Palliative Care in Bern organized by the palliative care research switzerland platform.
Palliative Care research still needs special effort to consolidate: few research groups in our country have a critical size for sustainability. Funding opportunities specific for Palliative Care are scarce.
It is therefore essential to stay connected and support each other in our strives.
The 2022 Research Day intends
• to organize a festival of ideas and to encourage thinking out of the box for young research talents as well as for current and future developers in Palliative Care with a broad spectrum of professional background: completed projects are equally welcome as interesting project ideas in an earlier stage as well as – new this time – quality improvement projects.
• to continue our national platform activities: a bi-annual alternation of summer academy and national research day,
• to attract researchers, clinicians, project leaders, and students for discussions, reflections, exchange of ideas and promotion of careers
• to offer opportunities for discussion with clinicians of all professions and patient/ public representatives in terms of potential impact/ implementation of research into practice.
We hope that many of you are excited about this event and eager to come, join, present and discuss in a unique and inspiring atmosphere.
For the scientific committee
