Connecting Nurses Celebrates Nursing Innovation Award Winners
May 21st, 2012
In the context of the global Connecting Nurses partnership, 20 most promising nursing innovation projects were awarded from over 100 projects submitted for the first nurse practice innovation award. Nurses from over 40 countries participated in the program. An independent committee made up of 7 nurses selected the 20 most promising initiatives based on the value they will bring to patients and nurses. These projects will receive Sanofi’s support and mentoring to bring them to life and benefit as many nurses and patients as possible. Two award categories were available for choice, “helping hand”, funding to help develop the project or “nurse in the limelight”, professional filming to showcase the project
These initiatives have been chosen because they can make a difference in the life of nurses as clinicians, educators, administrators, or researchers. They range from home care nursing, care for orphans with HIV in Africa, podcasts on disease awareness and telehealth programs for the elderly in Asia to programs on advanced nurse practice in Europe and projects to support pregnant teenagers in the U.S. Each award winner will provide updates on the progress and results of the project to the network of nurses throughout the world.
We congratulate each award winner and look forward to sharing the progress report as we continue to support the work and development of nurses.
Nurses today are the backbone of most health care systems and they are highly trained to provide best possible care for their patients. To support nurses in their daily tasks and provide a forum of exchange, Sanofi iPCS launched the Connecting Nurses partnership together with four of the leading international nurse associations a year ago.
