Cambridge CRF nurses come out on top 

Antonella Ghezzi,

Two of our NIHR Cambridge CRF nurses have won top prizes at a research conference in Cambridge.

The Cambridge Research Conference is an annual event organised by Professor Christi Deaton to support the sharing of research projects and research training experiences/opportunities. The conference included a challenging 10-minute rapid fire context presentations and external speakers who are purposely invited by Prof Deaton in order to enrich researchers current knowledge.

The prize was a family ticket to Blenheim Palace, which was awarded to Antonella Ghezzi, NIHR CRF manager, (top right) for best poster – The NAFLD international project: a practice evaluation of health professionals’ experiences in the management of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in the UK and India.

Jessica Taylor, NIHR CRF research sister (bottom right), presented a poster on Achieving Linchpin Effectiveness in Clinical Research Nursing Practice at the event. Jessica won a large box of biscuits as part of the research survey draw

Prof Deaton said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to see the breadth of research undertaken by staff and how these are driven by questions from clinical practice. It is also wonderful to hear about the different options there are Prof Deaton on the left and Jessica Taylor on the rightfor increasing research knowledge and skills that are available locally and nationally, and how staff are successful in developing themselves.”

Congratulations to you both.
