Caroline's background is in district nursing, and she is now involved in work improves the lives of people living with life-limiting illnesses who require palliative care. She is a Lecturer (Research) within the Deteriorating Patient Research Group at the Institute of Healthcare Policy & Practice at the University of the West of Scotland.
Caroline's win entitles her to a free trip to the Institute for Health Care Improvement (IHI)'s IHI National Forum, which will take place from December 10 - 13th in Orlando, Florida. The IHI plans to award this scholarship to one nursing professional each year.
A panel of judges selected Caroline's winning essay on the topic of improving the identification of palliative care needs for people living with a life-limiting illness in one community setting.
