Congratulations to Queen’s University student Zoe Lau, winner of the 2018 Undergraduate Narrative Award for Palliative Medicine. We have invited Ms. Lau to personally share her narrative at the 2019 Advanced Learning in Palliative Medicine Conference in Calgary (May 23 – 25, 2019). She will also receive a cash prize of $500, generously sponsored by Pallium Canada. We have also encouraged her to submit her narrative for potential publication.
Each year the award also recognizes a palliative care physician who has shown an enduring commitment to the integration of the arts and humanities into the practice of palliative medicine. This year’s honouree is Dr. Lyle Galloway from the University of Calgary.
Thank you to all entrants and to the 2018 judging committee: Margaret Cottle (CSPCP Undergraduate Education Committee), Lyle Galloway (Honoree, U. of Calgary), Carol-Ann Courneya (Advisor), Cori Schroder (CSPCP Awards Committee), and Barbara Sibbald (CMAJ).
