Nurses are encouraged to nominate inspirational heroes who are making a difference in stroke care or advocacy.
Nominations are now open for the 2019 Stroke Foundation awards. The awards, now in the tenth year, recognise stroke survivors, carers, volunteers, health professional and researchers who work tirelessly to improve the lives of people affected by stroke.
Stroke Foundation CEO Sharon McGowan said there were many outstanding Australians who boosted awareness of stroke, raised vital funds and advocated for a better future for stroke survivors and their families.
“There are six award categories this year, which provide the opportunity to acknowledge those unsung heroes whose actions help the Stroke Foundation in its mission to prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery.”
Adelaide Stroke Nurse Consultant Lizzie Dodd was recognised for her lifetime dedication and commitment to stroke care last year, winning the 2018 Stroke Care Champion Award.
Nominations for the 2019 Stroke Foundation awards close Friday 15 February.
Winners will be announced at the Stroke Foundation Stroke Awards ceremony held in Melbourne in May.
