Professional Study Day Seminars

The David Collins Leukaemia Foundation of Tasmania calls for applications for scholarships for Professional Study Day Seminars in leukaemia treatment, research or support. Applications are open to all Tasmanian nurses, allied health professionals, and Tasmanian health professionals working in day chemotherapy units.

Awards to the value of $1,500 will be given to assist applicants to organise study days for professional development directly related to the improvement of leukaemia treatment, research or support.
