HarryThe IIMHN would like to congratulate Dr Harry Gijbels of UCC on being nominated by the International Care Ethics (ICE) Observatory at the University of Surrey UK, to receive one of the two Human Rights and Nursing Awards given by the ICE Observatory every year.  Harry will receive this Award at the ICE Observatory conference at the University of Sao Paulo, Ribeirao Preto, Brazil, on 14-15 September 2016.  We are very proud to see the recognition of Harry’s work in this way; as a founder member of the Institute, in his work developing Hearing Voices Network Ireland and the Critical Voices Network Ireland, Harry has given an example for mental health nurses to aspire.
