Jan Jebson Malimban
Urology Specialist Nurse, East And North Hertfordshire NHS Trust
Bruce Turner was a well known and loved BAUN member, a nurse consultant at the Homerton Hospital, London, and BAUN Education lead for many years.
Our beloved friend and colleague passed away in 2016 after a terminal diagnosis of cancer. He was determined to continue his mission to educate and impassion urological nurses and left instructions that a legacy should continue in his name.
His legacy has been used to establish The Bruce Turner Award: an annual prize which will provide a fully funded place (transport within the UK, accommodation and conference fees) to the BAUN annual conference.

Sarah Henderson Best Poster Award
Patricia Musuka, Urology Nurse Practitioner, Hampshire Hospitals
'Self Directed Trial Without Catheter :Improving the patient's journey ,reducing hospital costs and avoiding waiting time delays.'
This year myself (Anthony Shanahan) had the privilege of judging the Sarah Henderson Award. The quality of the posters were of a high standard and we were both proud of every poster submitted this year
The posters submitted comprised of awareness, educational and research based pieces of work. Their chosen topics all related to aspects of Urology Nursing that no doubt benefitted every reader. The topics ranged from Catheter Care, Management of MS and Spina Bifida, Patient awareness and prostate biopsies. These posters covered most of the sub-speciality aspects within urology nursing
The reasons this poster was chosen as the winner was firstly, the layout and the way it was written was of an exceptional high standard. The topic was very important and we feel that it would relate to urology nurses nationally and internationally. This piece of work showed that a lot of time and effort was put into achieving this research.
We are hoping to see the full and final version as an article within the IJUN.

Award for Best Oral Presentation
Louisa Fleure, Consultant Nurse, Guys and St Thomas NHSTrust
'The Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) Education program in the UK'
The quality of the oral presentations this year, has as usual been extremely high standard and this made judging both challenging but also pleasurable as well. The winner was chosen because they were very eloquent, they met the requirements for the time keeping, and ticked all the boxes on a subject that is very important to all urology nurses up and down the country.
