Westmead Hospital nurse David Pearce (and part-time filmmaker!) has been recognised for his on-screen efforts in the 2017 Nurses and Midwives’ Short Film Festival.
David, a clinical nurse consultant in the Acute Pain services team, scored the $2000 second prize at the awards for his film The Future of Nursing.
The movie is set in 2317, where nursing research teams are searching the galaxy for organisms to fight disease as antibiotics fail to control super bugs.
On return to Earth, one organism threatens the team of Nursing Research 1.
The short film runs for five minutes, and can be viewed here.
