Paediatric nurse wins Queensland CDE of the Year Award

A desire to help children with diabetes and their families is what inspired this year’s top Queensland educator Rene Hinton (pictured) to join the profession.

“When I was working in a paediatric ward, I was coming across many children who were diagnosed with diabetes and helping to educate families really sparked my interest,” says Ms Hinton, a paediatric nurse who splits her time between private practice and the Sunshine Coast Hospital.
