The 2022 recipients of the Costello Medal, representing the Dublin Dental School and University Hospital, were Donald Ademaj and Cameron Price.
The title of their presentation was ‘Environmental sustainability policies in healthcare: a global qualitative review of policy content and production’.
The presentation examined if, when and where scans of environmental sustainability policies have been published, and investigates the types and content of published sustainability policies, and their applicability in healthcare and potential future research avenues.
This year the poster demonstrations were adjudicated by visiting lecturer Prof. Michael Lewis of Cardiff University, and Dr Caroline Robins, IDA President. The Costello Medal was presented at the IDA Annual Conference in Galway in May.
