Treatment of patients is, in most cases, a combined effort of several individuals and it is recognised that the outcome of a procedure is optimal when the professionals do indeed work together as a team.This award will seek to recognise those who can demonstrate added value by their contribution. The judging panel will want to see actual multidisciplinary healthcare working and actual examples of it in practice as well as an outline of what lessons have been learnt from its implementation.
Judges will be looking for:
- Entries clearly demonstrating how groups of hospital professionals are working together to enhance care, for example by describing the difficult process of developing an effective team and barriers
- Examples of systems that have facilitated the communication of information needed for different professions to bring together their skills to help patients
- Examples of cross-disciplinary learning and support
- Evidence of impact on patient care and professional development arising from multidisciplinary work
Who can enter:
This category is open to all hospital professionals working within the hospital sector in Ireland. Applications can be through nominating a team or yourselves.
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.
