Deadline approaching for diabetes hero awards
The deadline for nominating your diabetes hero in this year’s Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes Awards is Friday, July 28.
The three categories available to choose from is the outstanding educator in diabetes, diabetes healthcare professional of the year and the QiC Diabetes people’s award.
Once nominated, the information for each contender will be posted online so members of the public can vote for their favourite.
The top five nominations from the public vote will then be reviewed by an independent judging panel made up of senior judges and chairs who will make the final decision on who receives the award.
Programmes and initiatives should relate to the period from January 2011 to December 2016 and be from throughout the UK and Ireland.
Organisations, companies or individuals may submit entries on behalf of themselves or others and may enter the same project in a maximum of one category. Organisations can enter separate projects in multiple categories.
Particular credit will be given to projects which demonstrate results having quality and/or efficiency benefits which could be replicated elsewhere, thereby having a greater impact than their initial focus.
Now in its seventh year the annual event recognises initiatives which have been highlighted by the NHS, patients and the industry as improving the quality of life for people living with the condition.
The aim is to highlight the benefits and adaptability of entrants’ initiatives to a wider healthcare audience, including presenting at next year’s annual Diabetes UK Professional Conference.
The deadline is 5pm on Friday, July 28. To nominate, click here.
