A Westmead Hospital nurse will train in innovative cancer patient care in Denmark after being granted an award named after Crown Princess Mary.
Nursing unit manager Noeline Rozanc was awarded the second annual Sydney West Cancer Network Crown Princess Mary Cancer Centre Nursing Fellowship.
The fellowship is equivalent to a $7000 scholarship for Ms Rozanc to spend two weeks at Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark next year, where she will learn from their cancer care team.
Ms Rozanc will also pass on the innovations in cancer treatment and models of care that she and other Westmead staff use.
‘‘I’m particularly interested in exploring opportunities to collaborate and build on oncology nursing research within Westmead Hospital,’’ Ms Rozanc said.
‘‘I can’t wait to foster new partnerships with our international partners so that we can improve and develop cancer care.
‘‘This will definitely be a major career highlight for me.’’
Ms Rozanc has held various positions in Westmead Hospital’s cancer services over the last seven years, in medical oncology, haematology oncology and palliative care.
She started her career at the hospital as a student nurse in 1980.
