NURSE Consultant and Deputy Director of Infection Prevention and Control at the Trust, Sharon Mawdsley, received an award for the Best Oral Presentation at the Infection Prevention Society (IPS) Conference.
Sharon beat off tough competition to win this prestigious award which is judged by the IPS Scientific Programme Committee.
Her presentation related to the Trust’s response to the monkeypox incident last year in Blackpool.
Sharon was awarded the runner up prize for Infection Prevention Nurse of the Year in March at the British Journal of Nursing (BJN) Awards.
She was consequently invited to write an article for the journal which was published in September. Sharon and her team have also been shortlisted for the Nursing Times Infection Prevention award later this month.
