Research Plans

EAUN Nursing Research Project Competition

The EAUN invites their members to submit a research plan on a topic relevant to urology, continence nursing or a related field.

Submission is now closed.

Do you have an idea for a project that will…

  • Improve the quality of your daily work in urology care?
  • Turn a new or unique aspect of nursing care into a research project?
  • Evaluate developments that have taken place in your urological field?
  • Turn practical clinical issues in nursing into a research project to help resolve them?
  • Or do you have a small practical project that you would like to develop into a research project?

All the projects of the nominees will be discussed in a scientific session, thus creating the possibility for all participants to learn from other projects, through feedback and discussion. The winner will be chosen by the jury and will receive  € 2,500 to start his or her research project. The prize will be handed over in the Award Session on Monday afternoon, 8 April 2024.

We hope that many of you will use the opportunity the EAUN presents to you. Remember, also small research can change the urological nursing world!
