STAFFORD Hospital nurse has scooped a special award to continue her work on clinical trials in dermatology.
Kelly Amor, a research nurse, has been awarded the UK Dermatology Clinical Trials Network nursing prize, presented to those who have made significant contributions to UK dermatology.
Kelly, 32, has been a research nurse for two years and her role involves recruiting subjects for clinical trials which help gain information about dermatological conditions to develop new drugs. She has worked at Stafford and Cannock hospitals since June 2012.
She will now spend time at the co-ordinating centre of the UK DCTN, based at Nottingham Unievrsity and will also join the UK DCTN steering committee.
Dr Seau Tak Cheung, consultant dermatologist, said: “Kelly has played a crucial role in the development and implementation of the Department’s drive to broaden its research portfolio. Her work has been a great example of what can be achieved when clinicians and research nurses work collaboratively.”
