Stroke Champion Awards
Posted 28th August, 2012
The National Stroke Foundation and the Stroke Society of Australasia developed the Stroke Champion Awards to recognise people who demonstrate tireless dedication to the field of stroke. These annual awards are designed to let people know that although they may not get formal recognition, their contribution to the lives of patients with stroke, stroke survivors and their carers is vital.
Stroke Care Champion Award – This Stroke Society of Australasia award is open to health and social care professionals who have demonstrated a commitment of five or more years in the field of stroke and who have gone beyond their professional duties to improve stroke care and outcomes for patients with stroke.
Improving Life After Stroke Award – This NSF award recognises stroke survivors, carers and volunteers who have helped patients with stroke get their life back on track after a stroke. The award celebrates those who have not yet been formally recognised for their commitment over five years or more to supporting or improving care for stroke survivors and raising awareness of their needs.
If you know any colleagues, social care professionals, general professionals, stroke survivors, carers or members of your community who deserve this award, you can nominate them for a Stroke Champion Award.
