Anthony Gerada KM presents the Order of Malta Prize for Excellence in Palliative Care to Ruby Geddes.

The prize which has been supported and sponsored by the North Eastern Region Order of Malta for many years and is awarded to a second year Bachelor of Nursing student studying the unit NRSG259 Promoting Health in Extended Care, who constantly shows a positive attitude towards the subject matter of end of life care alongside ageing. This student will display good results together with active, engaging class participation. End of life care is one of the key pillars in our Orders defence of the faith and our region proudly supports this annual prize.
