On May 12, 2011, the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center (CC) are cosponsoring a joint conference on Symptom Mechanisms, Measurement, and Management.
This free, one-day event will take place at the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Distinguished guest speakers from across the country will present lectures on a variety of symptom-related topics. Attendees will gain a foundation in symptom mechanisms, measurement, and management, particularly those associated with chronic illnesses such as cancer and sickle cell disease.
The conference is part of the NINR’s series of anniversary events commemorating the Institute’s first 25 years at NIH and the contributions of nursing science to solving some of America’s most important health challenges.
The speakers in this course will include nationally and internationally known symptom scientists from various institutions including the NIH and universities across the United States. The conference is jointly sponsored by NINR and the NIH-CC. Portions of this event have been made possible by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, with generous support by Pfizer Inc.
