This is the final week to submit nominations for the new John Q. Sherman Award for Excellence in Patient Engagement.
The John Q. Sherman Award for Excellence in Patient Engagement is being jointly conferred by Standard Register Healthcare in partnership with the National Patient Safety Foundation’s Lucian Leape Institute.
The award will be conferred at the 2014 NPSF Patient Safety Congress in Orlando in May and award-winning programs will be featured on EngagingPatients.org. [Disclaimer: I write for EngagingPatients.org and am involved with the creation of the award.]
The John Q. Sherman Award for Excellence in Patient Engagement will be presented in two categories — one for a health care institution and one for an individual.
- The Institution award recognizes a health care provider institution or organization that has made dynamic innovations or advancements in patient engagement.
- The Individual award recognizes an individual or small group that worked together, clinician or patient who has demonstrated the qualities and characteristics in their community, in education or within the health care setting.
Nominations are due by March 28. Submit now!
