In collaboration with CAPO, the Canadian Virtual Hospice has established an award to acknowledge the exemplary work of psychosocial oncology professionals and students.
The purpose of this award is to promote progress in research, education and clinical practice in the area of palliative care and grief and the dissemination of information related to the psychosocial care. It is given to support oncology professionals in continuing education activities.
This annual award will be presented to a CAPO member who submits the best poster in the area of palliative care and grief at the annual CAPO conference. The presentation may reflect clinical practice, education or research.
The award will consist of a $500.00 honorarium to be used to support the recipient’s continuing education. A recognition certificate will also be presented at the annual CAPO conference.
Congratulations to the 2023 award winner Sarah Alonzi - Mortality-Focused Language of Palliative Care Descriptions and Clinician Willingness to Recommend the Service
