Are you a nurse dedicated to helping patients with problems related to  bladder or bowel? Do you want to help patients all over the world, not only now but also for future generations? As you know, today’s research leads to tomorrow’s clinical practice.



Apply for:

  • European Society for Paediatric Urology (ESPU) Nurses Research Grant 2021

Last year's winner
Last year's winner of the SCI Nurse Study Grant, Malin Nordin, and the winner of the ESPU-N Research Grant, Tinne van Aggelpoel, are currently conducting their projects. Malin is investigating bowel management pathways for SCI patients in the Nordic countries while Tinne is investigating toilet training in healthy toddlers in Belgium. Wellspect is very excited about seeing the results from these two important nurse-led studies!   

Ericaeli Nade wanted to map out the challenges for patients with a spinal cord injury when relearning how to empty their bladder using Intermittent Catheterization.

For Ericaeli, it was also important to explore how her patients could overcome obstacles in their social life.

My dream is to improve patients’ social life to enable them to continue with their daily activities and avoid complications resulting from their spinal cord injury. I want to make patients feel better and come to terms with their physical changes. I want them to live the happiest life possible"
