Applications are open for the 2016 Campbell Ballantyne Fellowship
The Fellowship provides an opportunity for those working for (or associated with) Nurse Maude to undertake research and development projects which are of application and benefit to Nurse Maude, its consumers and community-based health care. The Fellowship projects add to the body of knowledge available within New Zealand, particularly with regard to innovative and progressive methods or models of health service within the community that contribute to best practice and improved patient outcomes. Examples of previous projects include:
Funding up to NZ $30,000 is available annually
- Exploring the respite needs/options of families with children with high and complex health needs, and
- Evaluating the role, service and client outcomes of the Community Older Adult Nurse Practitioner role
- A usability trial involving the use of volunteers to provide respite for carers of NM clients with complex needs
The Fellowship will provide the successful candidate with funding for research activities or projects, airfares, accommodation (including living expenses) and such other direct costs which are verifiable up to a limit of NZ$30,000 (plus GST if applicable) in any one year.
Information about the Fellowship is available here and the application form is here.
Applications close on 31 July 2016 but we suggest that you have a discussion with your manager and/or phone the Institute on 375- 4635 as early as possible to help you to explore the feasibility of your idea/project.
