We are delighted to offer this fully funded award category in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University.

This category includes projects where postgraduate students have systematically developed an evidence-based project or proposal whilst learning in university, on practice placement or within their local community. The emphasis should be on transforming practice and patient experience by effectively responding to an issue of concern to a particular group of patients or service users and using an evidence –base to propose or implement change.

The project should illustrate the positive impact post-registration/postgraduate students can have in transforming future patient and service user experience. Projects that have actually been implemented are particularly welcomed.
