Funds for urological nursesTUF logo CMYK 385x137.jpg

The Urology Foundation is delighted to announce the launch of two funds for urological nurses.

Each year TUF funds research scholarships and research projects for urologists and urological nurses into prostate, bladder and kidney cancers, benign diseases and reconstructive urology. And each year this makes a real difference to patients, with real progress in care management and new treatment options.

While recognising the vital role research grants are for urologists, TUF also understands the importance of developing urological nursing. This is going to become more pronounced in the coming years as nursing continues to evolve and more specialist nurses will take over diagnostic and treatment tasks playing an ever more critical role in the patient experience.

Making sure we provide development opportunities for urological nurses to improve their knowledge of and skills in urology through education and training is key to ensuring nurses have the skills to do this. That is why we are supporting nurses to improve their knowledge of and skills in urology through education and training.

This year we have created two new funds that we are urging urological nurses and urologists to apply for. To request an application form contact info@theurologyfoundation.org
