Applications for the annual Catherine Pouget Award for research contributing to the improvement of the quality of life for the terminally ill are now being accepted.
The Catherine Pouget Award is not limited to projects with a scientific basis, in order to encourage those who may not have formal scientific training to make the best use of their experience in improving relationships between patients who are terminally ill and those responsible for their care and treatment.
Proposals, whether strictly scientific in intention and design or not, may focus upon patients, their families, or medical and other carers but will have as their chief intention improvement in the quality of care that patients receive.
An award of up to a maximum of $10,000 will be made every year.
The final date for applications is 30 September 2012.
