The Centre on Aging and Health Award for Innovation in Health Care Delivery recognizes Regina-based individuals, groups, or organizations, offering health care to older adults, who have introduced an innovative approach to service provision or who have conducted field research to evaluate services or programs for older persons.
We received many excellent nominations last year. Our adjudication committee, which consisted exclusively of seniors from Regina, unanimously selected Regina Lutheran Home for their regular and systematic implementation of Nurse Practitioner Team to their Eden Care philosophy. The implementation of a nurse practitioner team in this long-term care facility has resulted in measurable quality of life improvements for Regina Lutheran Home residents and serves as a model for others to follow. We hope to receive even more applications this year.
Winners will be presented with the award during a CAH-organized event open to the public such as our annual Distinguished Lecture. Award winners will also be featured in this newsletter and on the CAH website. The winner will be presented with a commemorative certificate and will be offered formal affiliation with the CAH. The award does not have monetary value, but we hope that it will properly recognize those in our community that are helping such an important portion of the population while encouraging others to do the same.
If you know of someone that would be deserving of this award, nominations (of no more than 8 pages) are to be submitted by October 15th and must include a short nominee biography, a short description of their innovation, as well as letters of support from colleagues and/or service recipients or their family members.
