Rowan Hillson Insulin safety award 2016

The Joint British Diabetes Societies for Inpatient Care (JBDS-IP) is inviting health professionals to submit entries to this competition to find the best joint pharmacy and diabetes team initiative to improve insulin and prescribing safety in hospital.

Rowan Hillson Insulin safety award 2016

This JBDS – IP project is being led by Umesh Dashora, Debbie Stanisstreet, and Erwin Castro.  The submissions will be judged against predetermined criteria, by an independent panel chaired by Rowan Hillson, and the winner will be awarded the prestigious annual Rowan Hillson insulin safety award at the ABCD Spring meeting. 

The outcome of this initiative will be published on the ABCD, Diabetes UK websites and the DISN UK Group forum to share excellent practice. This competition follows the very successful 2014 and 2015 competitions to find the best UK insulin chart and best hypoglycaemia avoidance initiative. 

Competitive applications are likely to be those that show hard evidence of benefit, that are translatable to other Trusts, are costed,  are relatively simple and sustainable, and which have been commissioned or supported by an Acute Trust. This competition is open to all health care professionals. 

Applications should be submitted to Christine Jones: christine.jones@nnuh.nhs.uk

The closing date is 31 January 2017
