Seqirus has announced applications are now open for its 2019-20 ‘Championing Change’ Innovation Practice Nurse Grants.
This is the second year of the grants that are designed to recognise and support the role of practice nurses in implementing initiatives to boost the rates of adult immunisation.
Three individual grants of $5,000 are available with sponsorship to attend the 2020 Australian Practice Nurses Association (APNA) National Conference, including travel, accommodation and registration.
Practice nurses working in GP or immunisation clinics who promote or support patient awareness, timely uptake and compliance with adult vaccines listed on the National Immunisation Program (NIP) Schedule or any state-funded vaccine programs, are eligible to apply for the grants.
“As champions for change, Australian practice nurses deserve recognition for the invaluable innovative grassroots work they perform in boosting the community’s immunity against vaccine-preventable diseases," said immunisation consultant, Angela Newbound, who is also a ‘Championing Change’ review panellist.
“Seqirus’ ‘Championing Change’ Innovation Grants celebrate and support the important, innovative and often unrecognised work that practice nurses perform, each and every day,” added Ms Newbound.
