SAGE with IASP Book Royalties Award

SAGE with IASP ‘Pain Management in Nursing Practice’ (S. Wright) Book Royalties Award

From the beginning of this textbook project, the intention has been to donate the Royalties received from sales of Pain Management in Nursing Practice to  Continuing Nurse Education in the area of pain management.

The ‘Pain Management in Nursing Practice’ Book Royalties Award was inaugurated at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Irish Pain Society (IPS) 26th August, 2017 by SAGE, IPS, and Shelagh Wright to fund one postgraduate Pain Nurse’s Registration fee to attend the World Congress of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP).

The first award from the fund will cover the Registration fee (usually about €700-€800) for the  17th  IASP World Congress on Pain in Boston, Massachusetts, USA from 12-16 September, 2018.

Eligibility and how to apply

Only IPS nurse members are eligible to apply for the fund.

Interested applicants will be asked to submit a brief outline of how their attendance at the IASP World Congress on Pain might impact/improve their pain nursing practice.

Applications will be assessed by a panel of non-nurse members of the Irish Pain Society Committee.

The winner will be notified before the early bird registration deadline of the IASP conference and will receive the award fund electronically, through the IPS.

The call for 2018 is now closed
