This Year’s Theme (2022): Palliative Care in IR
IR is often thought of as a field that provides “curative” treatment rather than palliative care. We often get consulted to “fix” a problem such as an acute bleed or a stroke. As the need for palliative care increases with an aging population, what can we do to help improve the quality of life for these patients?
See here for suggested prompts.
How to Get Started
1. Form teams of interested students at your own institution or join the Slack Channel to look for potential teammates. Multidisciplinary teams are always encouraged, so be sure to invite undergraduate/graduate students as well! Don’t forget to register for the competition.
2. Establish a relationship with an IR mentor. If your institution does not have an IR department or you cannot find a mentor, the BDIC will find a mentor for you.
3. Register for and attend the Palliative Care in IR webinar session.
4. For more information, see the syllabus.
