This May, NINR and the NIH Clinical Center will present a free, one-day conference called Symptom Mechanisms, Measurement, and Management. The conference will feature distinguished guest speakers from across the country lecturing on a variety of symptom-related topics, including symptom self-management in oncology patients, pain management at end of life, sleep disorders, and molecular mechanisms of cancer treatment-related fatigue. Attendees will gain a foundation in symptom mechanisms, measurement, and management as related to cancer treatment and chronic illnesses such as sickle cell disease and heart failure.
This conference is part of NINR's series of anniversary events commemorating the Institute's 25 years at NIH and the contributions of nursing science to meeting some of America's most important health challenges.
