The Global Research Nurses Pump Priming Awards 2021 Winners
Congratulations to the winners of the Global Research Nurses Pump Priming Awards!
The Global Research Nurses knowledge hub and The Global Health Network awards small pump-priming awards for nursing and midwifery led research projects.
Nurses are always at the forefront of delivering care to patients and playing a key role in identifying and improving their quality of life. By getting involved in research, nurses can play a vital role in improving patient care since research is the only evidence-based method of deciding whether a new approach to care is better than current practice.
The Global Research Nurses Pump Priming Awards 2021 made available £20,000 for nurses and midwives in low and middle-income countries to support local research activities.
There were 183 applications from 35 countries for the Global Research Nurses Pump Priming Awards of which 94 went through to a second round for review, 16 were short-listed.

Project: A mixed methods formative study to improve perinatal mental health in Tanzania: The Peri Health Project. The goal of the proposed study is to assess the availability of mental health services and training needs among health care providers in perinatal health care settings in Tanzania. Further, the study is set to validate a screening tool for mental health problems among women during the perinatal period in Tanzania.
There were excellent ideas that were not able to be funded, but we would like to see how we could work to support your work in other ways, through more training webinars, facilitating collaborations and identifying other funding opportunities. Please do consider joining Global Research Nurses and The Global Health Network to keep in touch.
