The 2014 Margaret M Blackwell Travel Fellowship has been awarded to Sarah Moore, a hospital play specialist at Starship Children's Hospital. She will use the grant to investigate the application of a method known as Snoezelen to support hospitalised children and their families manage transitions between home and hospital, within the hospital and the transition from hospital to home.
The fellowship, worth $16,000, enables early childhood education practitioners to travel to study a particular topic.
