Acute and Palliative Care Laboratory


Our laboratory conducts research to develop nursing interventions for various patients, and gather evidence to improve the quality of care for those experiencing physical and psychological distress, including individuals with cancer and their families and healthcare providers in emergency medical care. All cancer care-related topics are welcome. We also conduct studies regarding end-of-life care. We aim to harmonize scientific evidence with artful care to enable patients and their families to reclaim their lives. Website
