Amanda Drury awarded the Presidents Prize at the annual conference of the Irish Association of Oncology Nurses
The School of Nursing and Midwifery wish to congratulate Amanda Drury, who was awarded the Presidents Prize at the annual conference of the Irish Association of Oncology Nurses for her presentation on the results of her research on the quality of life outcomes of colorectal cancer survivors. This prestigious prize grants Amanda a bursary, sponsored by Bayer Oncology, to visit a world leading comprehensive cancer centre, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre, New York.
We also wish to congratulate Amanda in her recent appointment to the European Cancer Nursing Society Research Working Group. She will begin the role in May this year, participating in a lobbying event at the European Parliament to gain recognition of cancer nursing as a specialisation across Europe, supporting dissemination of the results of the Recognising European Cancer Nursing (RECaN) project, led by the European Cancer Nursing Society and supported by the European CanCer Organisation.
