Call for abstract:

All Health Care Providers are invited to submit their research abstracts, papers, and e-posters.

It is our pleasure to invite you to join us for the first Oncology and Palliative Care Conference to take place in Palestine. The conference will take place at Bethlehem University, hosted by the Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences on the 4th December 2018. We will present a packed schedule including; keynote speakers, oral presentations, and poster presentations.

We look forward to welcoming you at Bethlehem University Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences at Christmas time in the holy city of Bethlehem.

This conference will be organized to offer opportunities for national and international nurses to present their research, posters, and papers. Additionally, the conference will extend the opportunity for nurses to network, share experiences and ideas of working within multi-professional teams. There will be opportunities to discuss the care needs of patients and families and how they can best be met, how to provide comprehensive care that enables people to live with and beyond cancer or to die peacefully and with dignity to examine new models and ideas of future care, and to highlight recent research in the field of oncology and palliative care.

Oncology nursing in Palestine will be presented: Bethlehem University pioneered the first Diploma Program in 2016. With cancer the second leading cause of death in Palestine and a continued rise in cases, the need and value of the program cannot be overstated. The conference title “Challenge to Change” is because Bethlehem University has started this change with the Oncology and Palliative Care program, giving nurses much-needed skills and knowledge. Now we face the challenge of continuing to grow and develop.

This conference will provide a unique opportunity to bring together nurses from all over the world to share ideas, experiences, and progress in Oncology and Palliative Care. We are committed to helping nurses from Palestine to develop their skills, network with international colleagues, and to present their work.
