Many congratulations to OCDEM Endocrine Lead Nurse Anne Marland, who has been selected as the winner of the 2021 Nikki Kieffer Medal.
The Nikki Kieffer Medal is awarded to recognise nurses who have demonstrated innovative and successful
nurse-led initiatives in the endocrine field that have advanced best practice in patient care, education or
research. The Nikki Kieffer Medal is associated with the Nikki Kieffer Medal Lecture, which would normally
be delivered during Endocrine Nurse Update 2021, 26-28 April, but alternative arrangements are currently being planned.
The award honours the excellent work contributed by the Society of Endocrinology Nurse Member, Nikki (Veronica) Kieffer.
Nikki sadly passed away in 2019 and was the inaugural winner of this Award. She was a key part of the Society of Endocrinology, where she served as Chair of the Nurse Committee, led the development and publication of the Competency Framework for Adult Endocrine Nursing and championed the creation of the Society for Endocrinology–Oxford Brookes Masters-level module in Endocrine Nursing.
Anne Marland said "I’m thrilled to be recognised and importantly also representing OCDEM , Oxford University Trust and all Endocrine Nurses in the UK."
Many congratulations to Anne and her team!
