Nominations are now closed for the European Kate Granger Awards for Compassionate Care - named after an English doctor who worked tirelessly to raise awareness around compassion in healthcare while undergoing treatment for cancer.
Dr Kate Granger, who sadly passed away in July 2016, launched the awards in England in 2014 to recognise people and organisations that have delivered care with compassion at its heart. Now, with the backing of HIMSS and the support of Kate’s widower, Chris Pointon, colleagues in the rest of Europe have the opportunity to recognise outstanding patient care in the European Kate Granger Awards for Compassionate Care.
The European awards have three categories: individual, team/organisation, and best use of innovation.
The panel of judges will want to see evidence of ambitious and innovative ways of delivering care, excellent leadership and positive impact on patient experience.
The submissions deadline is 15 April 2019.
Winners of the European awards will be announced at the HIMSS & Health 2.0 European in June in Helsinki.
“Receiving this award has been really important for our team at Maudsley Simulation in highlighting the importance of supporting health and social care staff to provide compassionate care through training and development. We’re particularly happy to have been recognised as we work in mental health and hope to continue breaking down stigmas and improving attitudes in this highly important area. It has also helped us to launch a new education and training venture through Maudsley Learning, as part of South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.” Winners of the Kate Granger Awards, category “Team/organisation”, 2018
