Description:A partnership with the de Souza Institute will afford nurses seeking advanced preparation in oncology and palliative care a unique opportunity for professional development at the graduate level. Students will learn using a combination of the University of Windsor’s online collaborative educational environment and state-of-the-art on-site simulation facility, making it accessible to nurses across Canada.

The de Souza Institute will contribute to course development and student support for the graduate level diploma. Established in 2008, the institute provides educational support and professional development to Ontario nurses caring for cancer patients and families. The institute’s role in this partnership will be to support research training in oncology, to co-host some of the course offerings, and to facilitate clinical placements in 14 Ontario regional cancer centres. This unique model of learning between the University of Windsor and de Souza Institute will ensure that students pursuing advanced practice education have access to the latest standards in nursing cancer and palliative care.
