KRKA Young Hospital Pharmacist of the Year Award 2018

Last year’s winner in this category was Eimear McManus from the Pharmacy department in the National Rehabilitation Unit. She said: “I feel like the award gives me more confidence going forward to keep making changes and implementing improvements that can make patients manage their medications better.”

 

Hospital pharmacists are vital elements of medical and care management within the secondary care setting and those in their infancy years in the profession can hint at leadership excellence that inspires and develops the potential of others.

The KRKA Young Hospital Pharmacist of the Year Award recognises rising talent and potential amongst those at the beginning of their careers – those individuals who are already demonstrating that they can make a difference to their profession and the patients they serve.

This award focuses specially on the talent we will all rely on to deliver services for the next two decades and beyond, the young professionals currently delivering and planning services at the sharp end, but whose skills will be vitally important over the coming years.

Judges will be looking for:

  • Effective communication skills with both staff and patients
  • A commitment to mentoring or other leadership skills
  • Operating within their own department and liaising with key staff members and management and developing key communication skills
  • A dedication and commitment to furthering the profession in the future

Who can enter:

This category is open to all hospital pharmacists under the age of 30 working in any hospital department in Ireland. Applications can be through nominating an individual or yourself.

Each submission will be judged by an independent judging panel.

All entries will be handled in the strictest confidence and will not be made available to any party not involved with judging the awards. If your entry is shortlisted, the awards organisers may wish to reproduce a summary of your entry, photographs and any other supporting materials in the finalists’ booklet or within other materials they produce to promote the awards including all press materials.

Deadline: 8th May, 2018
