Care Challenge presents its favorite 2015 Vaccination projects!
As we celebrate the International Nurses Day, Connecting Nurses is proud to announce the results of the “Call for Innovation for Vaccination projects”.
Congratulations to Melody Butler from the US, Nicolas Schinkler from France and Marwa Isamail from Somalia! We would also like to thank all those who participated and shared innovative care & prevention solutions from around the world.
The Care Challenge favorites were carefully chosen from a group of 13 bright ideas related to vaccination, specifically in the areas of education, practice, or research. We received a lot of creative ideas meeting the challenges of nurses committed to preventing infectious disease worldwide, so we relied on the help of a jury of independent nurses to make this difficult decision. We would like to thank our Care Challenge jury for their help!
The authors of the Favorite projects are able to choose between promotional support, either for the implementation of the project or its promotion, in form of a professionally produced video displaying the project or a one-time financial contribution of five thousand euros (€5.000) to be donated by Sanofi Pasteur to a local organization to support the development of the project.
