How to become a member

Individuals and organizations whose objectives fit with NPCREU strategic goals are welcome to apply for membership.

NPCREU goals:

  • To promote palliative care content in nursing programs and to prepare new scholars in the field of palliative care
  • To build capacity in nursing and interprofessional palliative care research
  • To create a community of palliative care scholarship through partnership and interprofessional collaboration
  • To promote and enhance the uptake of palliative care research evidence into policy and practice
  • To expand and improve research training opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and other trainees within the unit

Membership application

Individuals wishing to apply for membership at the senior or associate/affiliate level may submit a completed NPCREU application form and an up-to-date CV. On the application form, applicants describe their experience or interest in palliative care research or education, what they expect to gain from becoming an NPCREU member and what they plan to contribute once they have become a member.

Organization membership is negotiated on a case-by-case basis with the co-directors and membership committee. Interested organizations should have a senior nursing administrator submit a letter outlining the organization’s focus and how it can contribute to the work of the NPCREU, to the NPCREU’s co-directors.

Organization membership application letters should be addressed to both NPCREU co-directors:

Membership appointment term and renewal procedure

Senior, associate and organization members are normally appointed for a three-year term. Affiliate members are appointed for a term necessary to complete their training or research project(s). The parties will agree upon the length of this term.

Reappointment is subject to the approval of the co-directors and the membership committee. The committee reviews membership appointments and makes recommendations on renewal to the NPCREU co-directors.

Individual and organization members interested in reappointment should submit a letter to the NPCREU co-directors outlining their objectives as well as how they have contributed and can continue to contribute to the work of the NPCREU in the future.
