Janice Caine Best Presenter Award

Janice Caine is a Melbourne based Vascular Surgical Nurse who was an inaugural member of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Vascular Nursing. Janice served many years on the ANZSVN committee, with her most notable contribution as Membership Officer – a traditionally high-workload role.

Janice resigned from the committee in 2019 and in acknowledgement of her significant contributions to our society we have named our conference ‘best presenter’ award in her honour.

The Janice Caine award is provided to the best nursing professional presentation as part of the combined surgical and nursing annual scientific meeting – typically hosted in the latter half of the year. The award is judged on the attached criteria.

All nursing professionals who provide a presentation at the annual conference are automatically entered into the running for this award, so there are no application forms required. Please note that this award excludes first-time nursing presenters – these individuals are entered into the Best Novice Presenter Award (see below). Award candidates must hold a current ANZSVN membership.

The award is only provided to those nurses who provide their presentation ‘in person’ (can include a pre-recorded presentation and/or live online presentation).

The award is typically accompanied by a monetary sum (determined by conference sponsors) and is announced at the closing of the nursing plenary sessions at each annual conference.
