Innovation Fund in Children’s Palliative Care Research 2008 recipients

On November 17, Laura Beaune SW, Samantha Anthony SW, Gurjit Sangha RN, Dr Karen Spalding and myself reviewed four research grant applications. Special thanks to each for the detailed, engaged and constructive review and to Karen for joining us from Ryerson University Nursing Department. We selected two to support this year and one to followup with for future support. The two research initiatives are:

Better Understanding How Couples Cope with a Child’s Life-Threatening Illness, principal researcher Susan Cadell, PhD, MSW - Associate Professor Director, Manulife Centre for Healthy Living Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work, Wilfrid Laurier University.

Development and Testing Of An Instrument To Measure Parents’ Perspectives Of The Quality Of Children’s End-Of-Life Care, principal researcher Kimberley A. Widger, The Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing, University of Toronto.

Here is Laura Beaune announcing the grant recipients at Sickkids Interprofessional Practise Symposium on November 18, 2008, with a break to appreciate the winners of the Interprofessional Practise Award also given by the Palliative and Bereavement Care Service at Sickkid.
