Queensland Blue Care clinical nurse consultant Kay Josephs has won the inaugural Australian Council of Community Nursing Services Community Nurse of the Year award.
Ms Josephs won the award for her outstanding work in the continence field.
“Because talking about incontinence is such a ‘taboo’ topic, many Australians needlessly suffer in silence from this problem,” she said.
“I see being Community Nurse of the Year as an opportunity to support and educate people about incontinence and encourage them to lose their fear, ask questions and reach out for the help they need.”
