Julie Kinley, Nurse Consultant for Care Homes at St Christopher’s, was recently awarded second prize for the EAPC (European Association of Palliative Care) Early Researcher Award.
Julie received this last month at the EAPC Congress 2015 in Copenhagen. She says: “It was a huge honour to win the second prize Early Researcher EAPC award as recognition for the research I have been part of. I recall the words Jo Hockley [St Christopher’s Nurse Consultant] first said when I met her: ‘undertaking a PhD is in fact the start of a research journey’. The EAPC award has provided a great platform to continue this journey.”
