Quality in Care, Diabetes: Nominate your hero 

Nominations for Quality in Care (QiC) Diabetes awards are now open.   

If you know of someone who’s doing a great job in the arena of diabetes care, maybe you can get someone the recognition they deserve. Categories you can nominate in are Diabetes Professional of the Year; Outstanding Educator in Diabetes and The People’s Award. 

The People’s Award, supported by Diabetes UK, recognises an individual who has supported/cared for people with diabetes. It will be presented to someone who is based in the UK or Ireland and is not a healthcare professional. It can be anyone that you think deserves this recognition, such as a carer, volunteer, a person with diabetes, diabetes blogger and/or writer, family member.

These are categories our readers can put in nominations for:

  • Outstanding Educator in Diabetes – This award will be presented to an individual who is based in the UK or Ireland, delivers excellence in education, in a specialist or community setting: whether through developing innovative teaching tools or courses; providing mentorship for other educators; or delivering and promoting externally developed training. He or she will have a clear patient focus and be seen as a champion for education in his or her area.
  • Diabetes Professional of the Year – This award recognises diabetes healthcare professionals based in the UK or Ireland who have succeeded in raising standards of care over and above their day to day role.
  • The People’s Award – This award will be presented to someone who is based in the UK or Ireland and is not a healthcare professional. Instead it will go to an individual such as a carer, volunteer, a person with diabetes, diabetes blogger and/or writer, family member – anyone that you think deserves this recognition. You may not nominate yourself.

The closing date is 2 July 2020, while the awards ceremony is due to take place at Sanofi’s  headquarters in October 2020. Find out more, including how to nominate, HERE.
