March 19, 2021


This episode of HPNA Podcast Corner welcomes guests Shannon N. Zenk, PhD, MS, MPH, RN, FAAN, director of the National Institute of Nursing Research and Jeri L. Miller, PhD, MS, MSc, CCC-SLP (ret), chief of End-of-Life and Palliative Care Research for the National Institute of Nursing Research Division of Extramural Science Programs. Dr. Zenk and Dr. Miller share with us insight into the NINR-supported end-of-life and palliative care research that is leading the way ​to address some of our most critical ​healthcare challenges of today. Our guests speak to the importance of ​nursing science and the role nurses have to address health inequities. The podcast describes how social determinants of health impact palliative and end-of-life care as well as the need for research that identifies effective, multi-level approaches to improve health and eliminate racial/ethnic and socioeconomic health disparities. Join us as we discover how NINR research is helping us move forward in end-of-life and palliative nursing to advance expert care in serious illness.
