Cassandra Dickens Wins 2015 Adem Crosby Haematology Nursing Award

Cassandra is a Clinical Nurse Consultant, Cancer Care Coordination, at the Nambour General Hospital on the Sunshine Coast. She is also currently studying a Masters of Cancer and Haematology Nursing. Cassandra will be using the Award to enhance her clinical expertise, by attending the 5th Emirates Haematology Conference in Dubai. Within the conference is a nursing care workshop, which will use evidence-based guidelines to discuss the gold standard of nursing care that should be provided to haematology/oncology patients. Cassandra is looking forward to interacting with other nursing, medical, and allied health staff, and further developing her knowledge and understanding of clinical best practice in the haematology/oncology setting, saying that:

“The financial support of the Leukaemia Foundation and Team Adem is enabling me to pursue my training internationally at conferences that focus on the gold standard of care for patients.”
