This summer Jeroen Hendriks, Cesar member and researcher at Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia will be presented with the Sigma International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame award.
Professor Jeroen Hendriks’ research focusses on the development of novel models of care, based on the concept of integrated care, for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and associated cardiovascular conditions, and also on the required redesigning process for implementation of such approaches in clinical practice. Based on this approach he and his team have developed specialised AF-Clinics with significant roles for nurses and allied professionals.
The Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing (ΣΘΤ) is the second-largest nursing organization in the world with approximately 135,000 active members. Since 2010 they have awarded nurse reserachers whose early career or long-term research has impacted the nursing profession. This year 32 professionals will be inducted in the International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame, following the 238 who has been regocnized earlier. “These inspiring, world-renowned nurse researchers represent the staggering, collective impact of nursing and nursing research on global healthcare,” said Sigma President Kenneth Dion, PhD, MSN, MBA, RN, FAAN
The ceremony will be held at the 33rd International Nursing Research Congress in Edingburg, Scotland 21-25 July, and Jeroen will report from the congress.
