As well as rewarding excellence, we will also be using the awards as an opportunity to promote engagement and encourage DESMOND teams to ensure key learning is disseminated across our community.
The awards are open and culminate in the prize giving on Monday, November 14, which is World Diabetes Day 2016.
A judging panel comprising of senior members of the DESMOND National Office will be convened to pick the winners and runners up for each category. As well as the overall winners, there will also be special merit awards. Prizes will include a certificate and a trophy.
The categories include:
- Team of the Year
- Educator of the Year
- Patient of the Year
- Innovation Award
- Excellence Award
