Five year anniversary
The SCI Nurses Study Grant in cooperation with Wellspect celebrates its five years anniversary and we took the chance to present this year's winner at ISCoS in Sydney. The awarded nurses get a chance to perform a study and share their expertise in bladder or bowel management, challenge current clinical practice and improve SCI care, but also to develop and expand their CVs.

Randi Steensgaard and Line Trine Dalsgaard applied for the study grant with their project: 'Cross-country study of the correlation between bladder emptying methods and urinary tract infections in patients with spinal cord injury'.
We wish them the best of luck with the study and look forward to taking part of the results later on!
