ADSHG endocrine nurse prize: Annette Louise Seal memorial award


  • The ADSHG offers an annual prize at the Society for Endocrinology BES conference, for a nurse-led research project that advances steroid awareness and patient safety.

The winner receives a £500 award at the Society for Endocrinology BES conference for the abstract submitted which best advances the clinical management of steroid replacement therapy or adrenal insufficiency, and where the first author is a nurse. Abstracts may cover any aspect of adrenal crisis prevention and treatment, the management and monitoring of steroid replacement therapy or associated patient education. Entries are assessed by the Society's judging panel at the conference. The judges may award a runner-up prize of £250 where there is more than one outstanding entry.


To enter this annual award, please visit the Society for Endocrinology's BES web pages here.

The ADSHG's endocrine nurse prize was launched in 2010 and is known as the Annette Louise Seal memorial award, in recognition of a group member's mother. Annette Seal was an active volunteer for the charity and assisted with our presence at medical conferences prior to her sad, early death. You can find information about the full range of prizes and awards offered by the Society for Endocrinology on its website here.
