The Reverend Canon Dr Daniel Nuzum who serves on the Pastoral Care Team at Marymount University Hospital and Hospice in Cork has been awarded a Palliative Care Education Fellowship by the All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care. This award aims to support palliative care professionals across the island of Ireland.
Daniel, who serves as Church of Ireland Chaplain at Marymount, is also Church of Ireland Chaplain at Cork University Hospital, Cork University Maternity Hospital, as well as the Bon Secours Hospital, Cork. His ministry in these hospitals is generously supported by the outreach programme at Saint Luke’s Charity, Cork.
Bishop Paul Colton said:
I warmly congratulate Daniel on this very significant achievement. This recognition of his pioneering ministry is well-deserved.
Marymount CEO Dr Sarah McCloskey said:
We are proud and honoured to announce that Dr Daniel Nuzum has been awarded an AIIHPC Palliative Care Education Fellowship. We look forward to working with Daniel on his new initiatives which will be invaluable to palliative care education in Marymount.
Daniel’s fellowship has been awarded for the development of online spiritual care educational resources for use in palliative care. Daniel’s aim is that the fellowship will provide training resources for cross-professional education in palliative care in the area of spirituality which is globally recognised as a constituent part of palliative care.
I am proud to receive this fellowship and to work with great colleagues to bring this new palliative care project to fruition. Spirituality and good spiritual care is integral to all care in palliative care and I am delighted to be able to develop these new resources for fellow professionals.
