PCNIG Update - Happy Nursing Week

Posted on May 8, 2023, 1:36 p.m.

Hello PCNIG members!

First and foremost, we are so honoured that you are a part of our interest group where our mission is to shed light on news, best practice and research on palliative care. The last couple of years have been challenging but they have also shown how above and beyond our profession goes to provide the best care, especially  as our patients, their families and communities journey through, living, dying and  end of life. 

Our RN and NPs will be receiving a small token of appreciation over the next week from the PCNIG that you can show off and be proud to be a member! Below for our RN students, Rn and NPs is an opportunity to further your education


PCNIG is excited to be offering funding for 8 members to attend upcoming hospice and palliative care conferences this year. Please complete the application form by following the link.

The conferences PCNIG is funding members to attend include:

1. Hospice Palliative Care Ontario (HPCO) Conference – Richmond Hill, ON - June 11-13, 2023. https://www.conference.hpco.ca/

2. Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA) Conference – Ottawa, ON - October 12-14, 2023. https://www.chpca.ca/conference/

PCNIG will pay for the conference registration fee for 3 Nurses/Nurse Practitioners and 1 student ( so total of 6 offerings) to attend either the HPCO conference or the CHPCA conference. Each member can only receive one conference scholarship. 

The funding will be provided on a first come, first serve basis and is only applicable for the conference registration fee (accommodation, conference dinner, travel, etc. not included). 


We will announce the funding recipients by June 5, 2023.
