NINR-supported researcher Jennifer Temel, M.D., Ph.D. will present “Integrating Palliative and Oncology Care in Patients with Advanced Cancer” as part of the NIH End-of-Life and Palliative Care Special Interest Group (EOL PC SIG) Lecture Series on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. in Natcher Building 45, Room J.
Dr. Temel's research interests include optimizing the delivery of care for both lung cancer patients and their families, with a focus on palliative and end-of-life care. She is a current NINR R01 grant recipient for her study entitled “Early Palliative Care for Newly Diagnosed Cancer Patients.”
The NIH EOL PC SIG provides a forum for interested researchers from the NIH Intramural and Extramural Research Programs as well as interdisciplinary scientists from the non-NIH community to discuss current trends and exchange information in end-of-life and palliative care (EOL PC) research, including research translation. Meetings include lectures from leading researchers in the field and group discussions of topical events or work-in-progress within the EOL PC scientific and research communities.
