Stene Prize Winner 2015

Although Charlotte’s essay concerns rheumatoid arthritis it could just have easily been a diagnosis of fibromyalgia she was writing about.  Many people with FM will relate to her experiences.  ENFA, along with others is determined that professionals will all understand and their patients will feel all the better for their understanding

Stene Prize Winner 2015 – official announcement

On behalf of the 2015 Stene Prize Jury under the leadership of Nele Caeyers, ReumaNet, Belgium and PARE Board member, we are delighted to share the final results of the 2015 Stene Prize competition with you.

First of all we would like to thank you and all national submitters very much for your active participation and contribution to this year’s Stene Prize competition This year the theme, “Taking control of my life – working together with health professionals to achieving my personal goals”, was featured and the EULAR secretariat has received 24 contributions which is the highest number ever. We are very happy to report that all entries were of very high quality and remarkably well written and many were really inspiring and motivational.

These criteria were used by the five Jury members in order to score each entry and they had a difficult choice to make as the number of impressive essays was very high. As usual, all entries were scored anonymously and the jury members were excluded from scoring the submission of their own country. The Jury is delighted to announce that the Stene Prize 2015 is awarded to Ms Charlotte Secher Jensen from Denmark. We congratulate Ms Charlotte Secher Jensen very warmly and look very much forward to meeting her in Rome this year in June during the EULAR congress.

Please see the winning essay as a separate attachment as well as some information about the successful writer.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who shared their personal stories about the fundamental role health professionals play in the life of people with rheumatic or musculoskeletal diseases. As we are so pleased with the overall response and high quality of entries it has been decided to once again develop a Stene Prize Booklet out of a selection of entries received for the 2015 competition. It will be published in time for the EULAR congress.
