Columbia University School of Nursing Launches Comprehensive Palliative Care Program for Students at All Levels

Columbia University Irving Medical Center

Columbia University School of Nursing is launching a school-wide palliative care education program that integrates the basic principles of palliative care into the curriculum for nursing students at all levels. The program reflects the recent development of competencies and recommendations from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). At a time when healthcare professionals are bracing for an unprecedented number of Americans who will be living with one or more chronic, life-limiting illnesses, the AACN is encouraging palliative care education for nursing students in pre-licensure programs.

University of North Carolina Health Care System

In the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers and colleagues report they have developed tissue-engineered models for cancer metastases that reflect the microenvironment around tumors that promotes their growth.
