2019 Terry Feest Award – Dorothea Nitsch
We’re pleased to announce that the Terry Feest Award for Innovation has been presented to Professor Dorothea Nitsch.
Dorothea has made a significant contribution to annual report work and research in the UKRR over many years. She has been involved with chapter writing and providing input into the planning and methods for annual report chapter analyses as well as supporting research within the UKRR. She has also been the chair of the Research Methods Study Group and has given her time without remuneration to promote research and establish the research process within the UKRR.
Dorothea has recently taken up the post of director of informatics research at the Registry and we look forward to continuing to work with her on many aspects of research and data.
The Terry Feest award was established in 2013 to acknowledge the contribution made by Professor Terry Feest to the UK Renal Registry, not only in the early days for his initiative in setting up the UKRR, but also now in his retirement as he continues to contribute to quality improvement.
