A press release by Mesothelioma UK a few days ago stated that they were going to be offering a grant of up to £25,000 for nurse led research into mesothelioma, the killer asbestos-related cancer.
They are teaming together with Pat Stone Meso Support in order to provide the funding, which will support the National Lung Cancer Forum for Nurses (NLCFN).
The funding will allow for small-scale research studies or projects to be conducted into mesothelioma care for patients.
Any NLCFN members that wish to apply for the research grant will have to do so by 6 March 2017, with studies commencing in June 2017.
The results from the research and studies will then be presented at the NLCFN conference in November of 2018.
Mesothelioma UK Director of Services and Consultant Nurse, Liz Darlison, said, “We’re delighted to be working with Pat Stone Meso Support and the NLCFN to offer this important research grant. The UK has the world’s highest incidence of mesothelioma with more than 2,500 people diagnosed each year and this number is increasing.”
“Mesothelioma UK is committed to supporting research into all aspects of treatment and care related to Mesothelioma and we encourage members of the NLCFN to apply so we can help them with their relevant projects.”
