PhD Student Awarded Prestigious Travel Scholarship

Posted on Updated on


Alison Bunce, Compassionate Inverclyde Programme Lead, based at Ardgowan Hospice, has been successful in securing the Florence Nightingale Foundation Travel Scholarship for 2016-2017  at a recent interview. Alison, who is a PhD student within our school, will be using the award to travel to Australia, India, and London. She is keen to add to the body of knowledge within this field and help facilitate Inverclyde in becoming the first compassionate community in Scotland where patients and their families, facing the challenges of end of life care, will know how to help and support each other. The title of her study is

“An International comparison of Compassionate Communities and informal support networks at the end-of-life”.

On her return the Foundation expects Alison to present and publish the results of her travels for the benefit of the profession and most importantly, for the benefit of patients.

The Florence Nightingale Foundation have asked us to publicise their scholarships to encourage further applications in all categories. Full details about their work and the scholarships that they offer can be found at their website at The Florence Nightingale Foundation
