Brian Power, who completed his PhD with HSRU, was recently announced as the winner of the Dame Barbara Clayton Award for Innovation. The Trustees of the British Dietetic Association award this prize to recognise innovation and excellence in dietetic practice.
The award was presented to Brian for his PhD work in which he systematically developed a dietitian-led workplace behaviour change programme tailored to changing nurses’ eating and physical activity. This programme provides an opportunity for dietitians to address a gap in current practice and play a key role in shaping the wider process of care by improving eating and physical activity of health professional colleagues and contibuting to workplace health.
Brian, now a Lecturer in Dietetics at the University of Hertfordshire, entered for the award to both promote his research to improve impact and also to recognise the research team at HSRU and the nurses who participated in the project.
