NCRC Success at the OLCHC Research & Audit Day

May 23, 2017

The 7th Annual Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Research & Audit Day took place on Friday 19th May 2017. The event, which showcased some of the exciting and innovative research currently taking place in OLCHC, was a wonderful success, and saw a high level of participation from scientists, clinicians, nurses and allied health professionals.

It was a particularly good day for the NCRC, who saw two of their funded researchers go on to win awards.

Moninne Howlett (left), a Senior Pharmacist in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital and current NCRC funded PhD student, won the prize for the best oral presentation with her talk entitled “The impact of electronic prescribing and standard concentration infusion facilitated by smart-pump technology on medication errors in a paediatric intensive care unit”.

Dr Kiva Brennan (below with her prize winning poster), a Postdoctoral Fellow based in the NCRC, won the award for best poster presentation.

Congratulations Moninne and Kiva!
