2018 International Undergraduate Awards Programme
We are delighted to announce that the following students have been Highly Commended in the Nursing, Midwifery & Allied Healthcare category of the 2018 International Undergraduate Awards Programme:
Aislinn Keane (Intellectual Disability Nursing) for her submission: A literature review exploring the recognition of pain and treatment of pain among adults with intellectual disabilities including care-givers’ experience, supervised by Professor Paul Horan;
Aoife Clare (Intellectual Disability Nursing) for her submission: The barriers to inclusive education for children with severe to profound intellectual disability, supervised by Professor Carmel Doyle.
Submissions to The Undergraduate Awards are assessed by an international panel of experts. This year, 4,887 submissions from students in 333 Institutions across 46 countries were received. As Highly Commended entrants our students’ work ranks in the top 10% of all submissions to Nursing, Midwifery & Allied Healthcare. Our two students are still in contention to be the Regional or Global Winner of this category, which will be announced in mid-September. We congratulate them on their success so far and send them our best wishes for the remainder of the competition.
