We are a group of nurse researchers, practitioners, and administrators who share a common goal of advancing the further integration of a palliative approach into the healthcare system. As a team we began to officially work together in January 2011 after receiving funding from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research. Members of our team share a commitment to enhancing the care of those with chronic life-limiting conditions, a passion for providing quality end-of-life care, and an absolute belief in nurses’ capacity to effect change in positive ways. Our program of research is strongly practice-oriented, meant to inform, and be informed by clinical practice. We hope that you will engage with us, offer your perspectives, and practice wisdom so that we, together, can generate understandings and evidence to inform practice and policy and decision making to make improvements to the care of people at the end-of-life and their family members.

The iPANEL Advisory Board was established to oversee the direction of this research initiative, to monitor its progress, and to offer advice and guidance to the research investigative team as needed. The board meets 3 times a year, has agreed on a terms of reference, and has a varied and skilled membership. All of the members have advanced knowledge, expertise and experience in the health care arena that will benefit the team as well as the process and outcomes of the research projects.
