Award Winners

Every year the EAUN Chair hands out 3 Best Poster Awards and the Prize for the Best EAUN Nursing Research Project Plan. This year 2 research awards were awarded due to an extra Research Competition in September last year.  The awards are a vital acknowledgement of the fact that the international urological nursing community is progressive and continues to push the level of clinical practice in urology nursing today.

The Best EAUN Nursing Research Project Prizes were supported with an educational grant from Wellspect HealthCare.

Here are the deserved winners of the EAUN17 Awards:
