Dr Audrey Finnegan Crawford
Scottish nurses are to benefit from a new fund that has been launched by Clydeside Action on Asbestos (CAA). The charity has been able to launch the fund following a donation from Dr Michael Crawford in memory of his late wife, Dr Audrey Finnegan Crawford, who died as a result of mesothelioma in 2013.
Phyllis Craig of CAA:
Audrey was our dear friend and colleague. She was working as a GP at the time she was diagnosed but came into our office one day saying she wanted to help. She was a source of inspiration to everyone who came into contact with her. When we received the donation from Dr Crawford we agreed that it would be a fitting tribute to Audrey to use it for the benefit of nurses who come into contact with patients with mesothelioma. We are delighted to be in a position where we can contribute to learning about mesothelioma
Nurses will be able to apply to the fund for help with the costs of participating in Continued Professional Development where their learning from the courses or events will be of direct benefit to patients with mesothelioma.
