This year, Professor Lin Chia-Chin, School of Nursing, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong and Immediate Past Dean of Nursing, Taipei Medical University, will deliver a talk entitled “Identifying Ourselves on the World Map”.

About the Speaker:
Chia-Chin Lin is Professor at HKU School of Nursing. She served as Dean at College of Nursing, Taipei Medical University, Taiwan during 2011 - 2017.

As a global healthcare educator, researcher, and leader, Professor Lin’s career encompasses the mission of research, education, and practice. Professor Lin’s areas of research expertise include cancer pain management, symptom management, end of life care, and physical activity in cancer and palliative care. She has led the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) in Taiwan and other interdisciplinary funded research studies that resulted in interventions that are now part of protocols used by nurses and patients in hospitals and at home. Findings from her most recent MOST-funded research indicated that home-based walking exercise relieved emotional distress and improved circadian rhythms and sleep quality in lung cancer patients. As a result, clinicians have incorporated the exercise counselling program for lung cancer patients into practice. She is the author of more than 100 publications in international peer-reviewed journals, and she has received numerous research awards and served as a member of editorial boards of renowned journals. She translates evidence to improve healthcare, implement teaching innovations, and provides leadership to upgrade education, research, and practice.
