Former Waikato District Health Board clinical nurse specialist Dr Simone Inkrot has received a European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Nursing and Allied Professions Investigator Award at the ESC Congress in Munich. The prestigious award acknowledged the importance of her NZ Heart Foundation-funded research on the link between health professional empathy and patient self-care, which was done with co-investigator Debbie Chappell while Inkrot worked for Waikato DHB. Read the full story on the NZ Heart Foundation website.

Inkrot was instrumental in getting the DHB’s heart failure service set up in Thames. She left New Zealand in mid-2018 to take up a role in Berlin as nursing project leader at an independent, privately-owned research and consulting institute for infrastructure questions in health, mobility and education.
