Research to Practice

Research to Practice Seminar Series

In 2012, NOHS partnered with the Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention at UBC Okanagan to deliver free, educational seminars to the public on a variety of topics relating to hospice palliative care. These sessions are facilitated by Canadian researchers and stakeholders and are offered 4 times per year. Since we provide an opportunity for people to join online or by teleconference, as well as in person at UBC Okanagan, the audience for these seminars is typically diverse and includes Hospice staff, university students and faculty, Health Authority staff, health care professionals, caregivers, and interested community members – sometimes from across the country.
