The International Neuropalliative Care Society (INPCS) is pleased to announce the continuation of our monthly recurring Neuropalliative Care Research Webinar Series.

Our last event took place on Wednesday, June 8th at 10am (US-Eastern) where we were joined by Sarah Bannon, who presented her K entitled "Resilient Together for Dementia: A live video resiliency dyadic intervention for persons with dementia and their care-partners early after diagnosis". 

Dr. Sarah Bannon is a clinical psychologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Center for Health Outcomes and Interdisciplinary Research (CHOIR) and Member of the Faculty in the Department of Psychiatry at MGH/Harvard Medical School (HMS). She completed her predoctoral and postdoctoral clinical psychology fellowships within MGH CHOIR at MGH/HMS (2019-2021). Dr. Bannon has clinical and research experience in both couple and family psychology and psychosocial interventions for brain injury and stroke.  In addition, she is currently using her growing expertise in qualitative and mixed methods techniques to inform the adaptation of dyadic interventions to address the needs of patients and family caregivers early after the diagnosis of dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Webinars in the series will consist of a presentation followed by an open Q&A and group discussion, with the webinar lasting an hour in total.  

The objective of these one-hour online webinars is to:

  • Provide both junior and well-established neuropalliative care investigators an opportunity to obtain feedback on research across varying stages of development, from initial idea to funding applications and publications.

While the primary target audience is researchers and health care providers, interested patients and family caregivers are also welcome to attend.

Additional details are described in Frequently Asked Questions or please email info@inpcs.org.
