The Oley Foundation is pleased to offer the Nutrishare HomePN Research Prize. Sponsored by Nutrishare, Inc., the prize was established to encourage clinical research focused on improving the quality of life for home parenteral nutrition (homePN) consumers.

 

The Prize

Each year, the Oley Foundation will award $2,500 for each of the top three clinical research papers best aligned with Oley’s mission to enhance the lives of homePN patients and that generate interest among homePN patients and improve their well-being. The paper/abstract must have been accepted for poster or oral presentation, or publication by a respected, relevant professional association such as ASPEN, ESPEN, INS, AGA, etc. between July of the previous year and March of the current year.

 

A portion of each prize ($1,000) will be used to cover travel expenses to bring the winning recipients to the Annual Oley Consumer/Clinician Conference to present their research.

Clinical research will be awarded points for each of the following criteria

  • How much interest the research would generate among homePN patients
  • How well the research fits with Oley’s mission to enhance the lives of homePN patients
  • How practical the research is for improving the well-being of homePN patients.
The three papers meeting the selection criteria above with the highest averaged ranked scores will be awarded prizes.
