The Carol Furber Award is presented in memory of the late Carol Furber who contributed so much to the College. The prime purpose of the award is to encourage members of the College of Paramedics to make case study presentations. This will promote reflection on professional practice and enable the results and experience to be presented to the wider profession and other health care practitioners. Case studies of a high standard may also raise research questions.
