Researchers from all over the world gathered in Berlin 22 – 24 May for the 16th World Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care. Many congratulations to Dr Katherine Sleeman, NIHR Clinician Scientist at the Cicely Saunders Institute, who received EAPC’s Women in Palliative Care Award, a new award that honours the contribution of women in palliative care.
The EAPC hopes that this award will bring more visibility to the achievements of women in research, advocacy, and leadership, and bring about more balanced gender representation in clinical, institutional and academic organisations. Katherine said: “Thank you EAPC for this wonderful award and to the brilliant women and men who have supported and inspired me.”
