In partnership with The Fiona Fund, this fully funded category recognises oncology nurses who have demonstrated their own personal commitment to developing their skills and understanding of the field.
The award will enable them to pursue those studies further.
Fiona Littledale spent all her working life as an information manager. For the final ten years she worked as Faculty Liaison Librarian for the St George’s Medical School. During her time there she trained hundreds of health professionals to access relevant, peer-reviewed and reliable information. Despite her failing health during seven years of cancer care she devoted herself to encouraging them in continuing professional development – seeking to go further and learn more in pursuit of excellence.
Each year the Fiona Littledale Award is to be given to an Oncology nurse who judges feel has demonstrated their personal commitment to developing their skills and understanding of the field.
Potential participants could include Oncology Nurses or Teams at any level.
